Proper way to customize Invoice reports on Odoo 7

Hi there,

I found that printable invoices are customizable by editing account_print_invoice.rml file.

But then I found that RML is not as easy HTML, so I wanted to ask you some guidance on:

1. Is account_print_invoice.rml the main file one starts editing when customizing an invoice report? Am I ok doing this?

2. Is there some kind of tool, like an RML designer, to quickly build and review the report instead of making on the fly changes and using the "Print Button"?

3. Is there a different design format or way to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

Another option is to install webkit_report module. 

After what you can edit reports in HTML with MAKO vars.
