This is my first bug report so forgive me if I screw it up.
We received an e-mail at OTRS (ticket # 2013030410006626) about a problem with the PDF conversion of the Stabat Mater article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stabat_Mater)
The error as reported is:
"I've tried to get the PDF of 'Stabat Mater' over the past week. It does not form into a proper PDF with the proper layout - this is the first time I have come across this issue.
The message at the top of the PDF reads: "WARNING: Article could not be rendered - ouputting plain text. Potential causes of the problem are: (a) a bug in the pdf-writer software (b) problematic Mediawiki markup (c) table is too wide" --- this one on attempt dated 04Mar13"
After asking at VPT, another user responded that the culprit is the multi-column formatting in the Text section. I copied the article to a user subpage without the multi-column formatting (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ukexpat/Stabat_Mater) and asked the user who reported the problem to see if it now worked. The user reported back that it does indeed convert to PDF without that formatting.
