    HTML Conversion

    Okay, I'm getting frustrated here. I have downloaded a book in html format. It has a cascading style sheet to go with it that makes for a really nice format. I would like to convert the formatted html page into another document format (such as pdf). How do I do that?

    I've tried abiword (it barfs), kword (it chokes), OOo, ted, kile, etc. All I want is a nicely formatted document that I can load onto my laptop or my LifeDrive and view it on the go. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Edit - When I open it up with a word processor it will show up in source format. Is there some program that can take the css-formatted html file and convert it to a nicely formatted, non-css html file? Is there a css to javascript type program out there for Linux? I don't mind jumping through several hoops in order to convert the html to pdf/doc/open doc format.

    Here you go

    Well, CSS is different beast. Word processors can't really handle CSS styled sheets because they are mainly for texts. That's why there are web browsers . I'm not even sure if html2pdf will be able to handle css formated web pages. Did you try opening up with Firefox and save the resulting html? I haven't tried it personally so I won't know for sure but it should work, at least in theory.

    Can you just open it on a web browser and then print it to postcript/pdf?
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    Good question. I'll check that option out.
