Generate PDF from rendered webpage(HTML and Flash)

Question:I am trying to generate a PDF from a web page (or series of web pages). The pages contain, not only HTML/Javascript, but also Flash images (graphs/charts/etc). I have been searching diligently for a library (ASP), but I have still to come up with something that works. (Note: I did find some solution, but that has a different problem.) The killer for all these apps tends to be Flash requirement. The library can be FOSS/purchased/etc - I'm open to all suggestions at the moment. I hope I can find a solution on VeryPDF?
