Have you ever printed an important document from the Internet, only to realize later that one side of the page has been cut off? HTML files can be unpredictable when transferred between applications, operating systems, and users. This is because HTML documents are defined by the browser or application they appear in. Most HTML documents will resize and realign themselves if the browser window is made smaller or larger. As a result, there is no definitive layout, only a suggested (yet highly pliable) outline.

The same inconsistencies that can occur when printing HTML files can also cause the documents to be altered when they are emailed, or even archived. Web documents, such as HTML files, are also visually affected by their frames, and can often become distorted after the file is downloaded. In order to print, download, archive, or forward an HTML file with any success, the document should be converted into a more reliable, steady format.

HTML to PDF Conversion

PDF files cannot be edited or rewritten with any common applications, although they can be viewed. In addition, they remain visually consistent across platforms. If you convert a document to PDF before forwarding it, you can be certain that the recipient will be able to view the data exactly as it was intended.

HTML to PDF conversions are sometimes too complicated to conduct satisfactorily using plug-ins, or virtual print drivers. File conversion applications convert HTML to PDF by inserting a string of PDF code inside an HTML document. This allows the program to reconfigure the HTML structure until it is compatible with PDF.
