As far as I'm aware, it's not as simple as it seems. Basically, HTML is
subject to interpretation by the user agent (browser) so doesn't look
consistent on all platforms. A PDF is meant to follow a fairly rigid
format that defines exactly how the output should be displayed (as it's
a presentational format)

What you could do though, if you're already producing the HTML output,
is to use the FPDF class to create the PDF you need, with appropriate
calls made from within your existing PHP code.
