This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You have to give us more information. Desktop software or web software? For what operating system?

For example, dompdf is a nice PHP5 HTML to PDF library that even preserves the CSS styling.

+1 for dompdf. It's a bit fiddly to get working, especially with images and complex layouts, but it works :) – DavidYell May 27 '10 at 11:04

For Mac OS X:

wkpdf is a command line tool for rendering HTML to PDF using WebKit and RubyCocoa on Mac OS X.

After updating to OS X 10.7 Lion, wkpdf has stopped working, with this error: – Ian Jul 31 '11 at 21:01
lockFocus sent to a view which is not in a window. I'm not sure if the 10.7 update is causing this, but that is the primary change to my system and wkpdf doesn't work any longer on any site. – Ian Jul 31 '11 at 21:02

You can also look at PDFCreator ( I am using it and am happy.

Can it preserve hyperlinks? I just tried it, seem can't preserve hyperlinks and not clickable. – cpps May 27 '10 at 11:11
@cpps No, it does not preserve hyperlinks. I had the same problem with it. – alex May 27 '10 at 12:51
