See the thread "convert html file to pdf with vb.net" started on the 15th
May for some suggestions.

Well, it could be that not everybody wants to install a PDF printer (which
in my opinion is a bad solution), but wants to convert the HTML to PDF some
other way. There's no suggestion for that, so if anybody has got other
ideas, please keep 'em coming.

Cheers,
Johnny J.

I agree. But despite spending quite some time looking into the issue,
posting the same question to this group some time back, and seeing a number
of other similar posts, this appears to still be the best (and only?)
solution without spending a lot of money.

I'd love to hear any other suggestions anyone may have too, but so far this
seems to be all we've got.

Not free, but a _relatively_ low cost option (especially if you can
get the small business discount) for the PDF creation part of this is
the Siberix control, which I haven't seen mentioned here. Details at:

www.siberix.com

I'm using this and it works fine in my application.

Looks interesting (and thanks for the link!)

But that brings us straight back to the first point I mentioned in the other
thread: you need something to render the HTML. I don't fancy writing
anything that would convert HTML to PDF via an API personally, you want a
proper industry standard engine to do that for you.
