Service that Prints HTML on server (NO user interaction, NO dialog

The idea is to have a SERVICE that receives a request to print an HTML string
(could be saved as file if needed).

What is the recommended way to print an HTML string on the server, where
there is NO user interaction, NO dialogs ?

Thanks,
FP

This is the idea:

A "web" admin user selects what a NOTICE from a list. That notice has an
HTML text on the database. When the user clicks on Print, the list of
NoticeID goes to a queue that gets processes at night.

I need to write the server side that reads the NoticeID list, gets from the
server each HTML value located on the database ...and print it on a specified
Server Printer

So my task is to print that HTML to a printer directly as batch, where there
is NO USER involved.

So I need to work out the 3 steps.

I think I have the code to print PDFs using ShellExecute
I now no
