An associate of mine is asking if there's a way to convert files from HTML
to PDF...any suggestions?

Acrobat 4 will do it (Windows only). Here's what the help file says:

"If you're working in Windows, you can download Hypertext Markup Language
(HTML) pages from the World Wide Web or an intranet in Acrobat and convert
them to PDF. You provide the address, or Uniform Resource Locator (URL), of
the Web pages, and Acrobat converts and opens the pages in one step.

"All of the text, images, and links from multiple HTML pages and image files are
contained in a single new PDF document. You can navigate in the new
document and edit it as you can any other PDF document. In this way, you can
gather information from the Web into one document that you can read off-line,
save for future reference, annotate, e-mail, and print reliably."

I haven't tried it yet, so I can't say from experience how well it works.
