I'm evaluating the htmltopdf functionality. 
I've got a string with a style tag containing a color and text-align attribute 

PdfHTMLTextElement texthtml = new PdfHTMLTextElement();
texthtml.HTMLText = "<p style=\"color: red;text-align: left\">This is a red text align left</p>";                                                              
PdfLayoutResult res = texthtml.Draw(currentPdfPage, new Rectangle(20, 20, page.GetClientSize().with, page.GetClientSize().Height), new PdfMetafileLayoutFormat { Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage, Layout = PdfLayoutType.OnePage });

From this ressource Working with Text, PdfHTMLTextElement support for a basic HTML tags but not the style tag. 
Is there any way to render the text-align property with a PdfHTMLTextElement  ?

Hi Vincent, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
The PdfHTMLTextElement class provides only basic set of HTML tags to render in the PDF document. HTML with CSS are not supported in this class, so we could not align the text using PdfHTMLTextElement class. To convert complex HTML, HTML with CSS and URL to PDF, we suggest you to try our WebKit HTML converter. Please refer below links for more information of our WebKit HTML converter, 
Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
