    I use the RadEditor to do this type of functionality...


    There are several other WYSIWYG editors out there like Cute Editor, CKEditor, etc.  I am not sure which ones are free.

    Also, you might look into iTextSharp...

    Not without re-inventing what others have already done.  I still suggest a WISYWIG editor because they make it so much easier.  If this is not an option, you will need to go through the documentation from Adobe (or others) in order to find out all of their API calls to create a PDF file from your own code.  Honestly, I have never done this because it wopuld take weeks of work to figure out.  If somebody else has a suggestion, I would love to hear it as well!!
