'' This sample shows how to render a hard-coded HTML string.
''
'' Adding GcHtml to your projects:
'' - Public classes And extension methods that allow to render HTML
''   are provided by the GrapeCity.Documents.Html (GcHtml) package.
'' - GcHtml supports Windows, macOS And Linux platforms.
'' - Internally, it uses one of 3 system-dependent HTML engine packages:
''   -- GrapeCity.Documents.Html.Windows.X64
''   -- GrapeCity.Documents.Html.Mac.X64
''   -- GrapeCity.Documents.Html.Linux.X64
'' - GcHtml will automatically select the correct system-dependent engine package
''   at runtime, but that package must be referenced by your project so that GcHtml
''   can find it. You can add references to all 3 platform packages to your project,
''   Or if you only target one Or two platforms, you can add just the packages for
''   these target platforms.
''
'' Dealing with errors when using GcHtml:
'' - If GcHtml Is Not doing what you expect (e.g. rendering HTML to PDF
''   produces invalid PDFs) - check the content of the static string property
''   GcHtmlRenderer.LastLogMessage after the call to GcHtml returns,
''   it may explain why the error occurred (e.g. a required shared library
''   might be missing on Linux).
'' - Sometimes the HTML rendering process can hang without any diagnostics
''   being written to GcHtmlRenderer.LastLogMessage. GcHtml automatically kills
''   the hanging process in this case, but there Is no diagnostics.
''   Normally such situations should Not occur.
''
'' The above notes apply to any project that uses GcHtml.
