This could possibly be handled on the back-end (server side). For example, using a PDF printer or PHP's PDF functions in a different page on the server to print the file and then return it to the client. I would expect it to be quite a large challenege to produce a PDF on the client side.

I recently used http://www.digitaljunkies.ca/dompdf/ which does quite a nice job. It builds the PDF out of the (X)HTML and applies CSS automatically. Note that it is slow on tables.

There's also http://www.fpdf.org/, but with this I believe you need to construct the PDF yourself by using fPDF as a library.

There was an effort once, but that has been downgraded to closed source: http://www.fckeditor.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=129&p=285

At this moment, this can be achieved in the server by using third party software.
