    alt-soft.com has a product Xml2PDF. I am implementing it myself right now. Also will convert XSL-FO and SVG to PDF.

    Ibex is also another product. Not sure if it will take XHTML


    Also annetae software in japan has a product and a style sheet for xhtml to xsl-fo then you can use Apache FOP to get your PDF.

    my question regarding that is ->

    its not generating pdf wht i hav done is ->
    System.Diagnostics.Process pProcess = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
                    pProcess.StartInfo.FileName = @"D:\HtmlToPDF\HtmlToPDF\ghtmldoc.exe";
                    pProcess.StartInfo.Arguments = @"--webpage --quiet --bodyfont Arial " + @" -t pdf14 -f D:\HtmlToPDF\HtmlToPDF\test1.pdf D:\HtmlToPDF\HtmlToPDF\test.html";
                    pProcess.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = @"D:\HtmlToPDF\HtmlToPDF\";
    the pProcess.start(),donst start while passing the arguments in both ways that r on ur article and one in the comments .if i comment that pProcess.StartInfo.Arguments  part then its opening the converter ,
    and when i m passing the argument its just going through it without giving any exception the code is executed but not generating the pdf,
    as i m using asp.net 2.0 so i dont hav iis on my system and i havnt configured that,
    and i have given the all permission to the folder to everone user in which i have keept that ghtml and in which i m writing the pdf .
    am i making some mistake in that code .

    Well I avoided products that were command line and only evaluated native .net products. I do not have any experience calling command line windows applications from .net.

    Sorry I can't help

    Use this converter HTML to PDF. With help of this tools I've created many reports runtime in my asp.net app. It allows generate a pdf file as a file or a memory stream. So, it's able to show the pdf without saving it on the server.

    At their website you can find helpful vb.net html to pdf samples:

            Dim html_st = "<b>Testing string</b><br /><em>with italic text.</em>"
            Dim file_pdf = "c:\new_report.pdf"
                Dim conv As New DuoDimension.HtmlToPdf()
            Catch ex As Exception
            End Try
