Create Pdf with html not working - draw function not returning


I try to create a grid in a pdf. In the grid I want to render a specific html with styling. But when I call the draw function, the code never came back.

I need to render html text with different font families and sizes in one cell. Maybe there is also a better way as I try? 
I attached the code.

Thanks and best regards

As of now, we have support only basic HTML tags for drawing, the provided html text have font facing inside the style tag, due to it takes the font data as text and taking more amount of time to layout. So we request you to use only basic supported html tags. You can find the supported tags from the following link.

Is there a way to use the PdfHTMLTextElement? For example create multiple PdfHTMLTextElement with different fonts and concat them?

Something like this ways:

var richTextElement = new PdfHTMLTextElement(htmlText, font, PdfBrushes.Green);
var richTextElement2 = new PdfHTMLTextElement(htmlText, font, PdfBrushes.Black);
row2.Cells[1].Value = richTextElement + richTextElement2;

As of now it is not possible because of we are supporting only basic set of elements.
