HTMLDoc might be what you're looking for:

(this is from an old tip that I posted:

There are quite a few tools out there for generating PDFs, but one
that deserves a mention is HTMLDoc (http://www.easysw.com/htmldoc/).
It can, build pdfs from multiple html files, using the h tags to
generate table of contents automatically, be run via the commandline
or in batch mode for on the fly generation of documentation, and it's
really simple to get your head round.

Plus it's multi-platform and GPL (with a pay for support option).
