Hi Sanhita

There are quite a few html to pdf converters, you can google them out. The problem is it's difficult to find a tool that converts "as it is". The better bet would be, probably, to recreate the pdf files separately with a look you desire.

You should state clearer that you want it done by php, if that is what you want

Install Mozilla Firefox, if you don't have it already, and get this addon; http://www.pdfdownload.org/

It copys the page as-is to PDF,, straight from Mozilla.

PDF specifies static, printed, visual documents, while HTML specifies fluid, on-screen, semantic documents. They aren't literally convertible. You may be able to get a possible conversion, but there's no guarantee that it'll be the one you want, or even one that looks decent.

Please don't spam the forum. As for creating PDF documents on the fly, I posted code to someone who had a similar inquiry, here:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47714



<?php

$html= "<h1>hello</h1>"; //To add more html code use $html.= yourcode; in the next line

define('HTML2FPDF_VERSION','3.0(beta)');
define('RELATIVE_PATH','fpdf/');
define('FPDF_FONTPATH','font/');

require_once(RELATIVE_PATH.'fpdf.php');
require_once(RELATIVE_PATH.'htmltoolkit.php');
require_once(RELATIVE_PATH.'html2fpdf.php');
$pdf = new HTML2FPDF();
$pdf->WriteHTML($html);
$name="doc.pdf";
$pdf->Output($name);

?>


anjd you'd need this extension:
