PDF rendering and Flying Saucer library

Developer Tools

Although it is not officially supported it seems that Flying Saucer is the Salesforce underlying engine to generate PDFs (https://github.com/flyingsaucerproject/flyingsaucer).

Looking at this library documentation, section "Flying Saucer Extensions to the CSS 2.1 Specification", we can see the documentation for the property "-fs-table-paginate":

https://flyingsaucerproject.github.io/flyingsaucer/r8/guide/users-guide-R8.html#xil_43

According to this doc, these properties can be used in CSS when rendering with Flying Saucer, but which will not be recognized by other renderers.

If that is the case would be great if Salesforce can document it and confirm the official support of this library to help to work with pdf generation in a more easy way.
