.NET PDF creation tools

Some time back, I had blogged about the opensource tools available in Java and .NET for PDF creation. Recently came across another commerical library called "Dynamic PDF" for PDF creation. This library has a Java and .NET version of the API.
The library is easy to use and is very robust. It handles 'over-flowing' tables and text areas in PDF files very gracefully.
Another interesting library that Dynamic PDF sells is the DynamicPDF™ PrintManager for .NET . This library makes it so simple to print PDFs and also has callback handlers for error messages from printers - all pure managed code. Now that's what I like :)

Two opensource .NET PDF generation tools are PDFSharp and iTextSharp.
