How to turn webpages into pdf?

Do you know of any application that I can use so that I can emulate a printing of a webpage? I dont know if emulate is the correct term but here is what I want to do:

I want to print a table that is in a webpage. The problem is the default printing service of windows (print spooler) which saves the file as .xps. Do you know of any application that I can install or even a portable application that I can use so that it communicates with the web browser and creates a .pdf file of the webpage I want to print.

You can use PrintPDF firefox addon.
There are several more add-ons that do that.

Have you tried Cute PDF? YTou can print the webpage to the Cute PDF printer and it will generate a PDF file. If i read your question correctly, that is what you are wanting to do.

There are several applications such as PDFCreator that mimic a printer, but actually churn out a PDF file. Also, if you just want to print part of a web page, select that part and pick Selection from the Print Range option in the Print dialog.

PDFCreator is a great free PDF-Printer.

Having this portable won't be possible, since it needs to register itself as a printer.
