ActivePDF is one I have used in the past. Not sure about the features
it currently employs, but at the time I was using it to not only
scrape a generated HTML page into a PDF, but to also generate them
on-the-fly using FDF and template PDF's. It's pretty powerful stuff
and they have all sorts of levels that you can get into.
