mozilla2ps project is a quick and gross hack to convert html to postscript pages in an unattended manner. I needed to convert a lot of html pages to postscript and wasn't really satisfied with html2ps, so I went ahead and toyed around with xulrunner and friends.
In order to use mozilla2ps you need Xul Runner.
Usage and configuration
Make sure you have Xulrunner correctly installed.
xulrunner --install-app mozilla2ps-0.1.xulapp
xulrunner --app application.ini file:///tmp/foo.html /tmp/foo.ps
xulrunner --app application.ini http://www.lwn.net /tmp/lwn.ps ;
ps2pdf /tmp/lwn.ps; evince lwn.pdf
I use it with this chmtopdf.py script in order to convert .chm files to pdf using only free tools.
mozilla2ps has at least the following bugs:
Allow configurable paper, size, margins etc.
Remove the setTimeOut workaround
