I don't know, I vaguely recall that when I was investigating PDF
conversion, either it didn't work or I didn't like the results.

I went for the GeneratePDF recipe because, while, yes, it needs an
external program (htmldoc) it was still a lot easier to set up than the
Wikipublisher recipe (since being behind a firewall I would have had to
set up a server as well).
