OpenEMR 4.3.1 and above

Overview

The html2pdf library was upgraded, which removed fpdf and added tcpdf. To continue to support labels, the fpdf label was then added back. In future, plan to get the labels to work with tcpdf, of which work was started on here(Needs lots of testing and ensuring all the labels are correct):
To support internationalization, the goal would be to migrate all PDF creation through the tcpdf package.
