I wouldn't call it shareware. It is available under a GUN Public License,
including source code.

The program is free but they sell support for $99 a year. Consider buying that

You have the source code, or can have just by downloading it. Consider making
the modifications you need (or having some in your organisation do that) and
sending the results back to Easy Software so we all benefit.

Is there a way to embed the info from your CSS into your HTML to make
htmldoc see it?

There are a bunch of options for formatting in the htmldoc menus. They give
you at least partial control over font choice, layout, ... How much of what
you need to do is possible with them?

Another free tool that will convert many HTML files to one big one, correcting
links and adding a table of contents, is the Amaya browser/editor from
It won't do PDF but will print and does understand CSS style sheets.
