I’m curious that the open source software wkhtmltopdf hasn’t been mentioned for converting HTML to PDF. It is a command line tool, but it’s very straight forward to use and is incredibly powerful.

I’ve used wkhtmltopdf to generate invoices, packing slips, and multi-page documents that were originally designed in desktop publishing programs with no compromises. Additionally, being WebKit based, JavaScript can be used to alter documents before they are rendered to PDF.
