What is the best way to convert HTML to a PDF on a web server?
Nowadays you have various ways to generate a PDF from HTML including Using a local software like Prince XML Using a local library depending on your programming language Using an online API. The first two options have the advantage of letting you do all the work internally but can be quite expensive (amercial license for PrinceXML is around $4).

How can I import an HTML page with CSS and JS in the Internet or convert it to PDF?
If the HTML page is under your hosting account then you have access to HTML CSS and JS files via web host file manager. You can download files at any time using file manager functions. Or you can use FTP. If the website is not yours you are limited to HTML image files and media files. You will not see CSS or JS files. It looks like you want to import a website you have found. This cannot be done other than getting what you can see. Anything ed to it will work if online. PHP and other server based processes will not work unless you have PHP enabled on yourputer. italic (I am not sure if all PHP files import over if you do a save as with your browser.) I see no point in converting to a PDF unless you just want to publish the code you get with your import. There are times when you want to get a table or data from a website. I once had to get credit card report data the hard way with copy and paste to Excel spreadsheet. Most financial services have data download services for account holders.
