I would create a PDF of the page dynamically using PHP (the previously 
mentioned 'ABCpdf' uses ASP/.NET and costs more than a PHP solution.. 
your requirements would, of course, depend upon the technology presently 
implemented - either way, just add a link in your site footer to "Save 
This Page" or something):


If you're doing this on a local network, you could install a network PDF 

('CutePDF Writer' is the best solution, http://www.cutepdf.com/ )
