1) Bookmark any site (in iOS 4.2.1, hit the arrow and "Add Bookmark"). Name the bookmark "Save in PDF" or something like that...
2) Edit that bookmark by opening the bookmarks folder. Press the book-looking icon and find the bookmark you just made. Press the "Edit button" and then press the bookmark words.
3) The second line down is the URL address for the bookmark. Erase everything in it ("X" it out) and paste the script below into it:
4) Then, just tap outside the edit bookmark window and ta da - you've created a bookmarklet.
With the bookmarklet, once you are at a web site you wish to save, merely press that bookmarklet and Safari will create a PDF of that page. And, you'll be able to open it in whatever app you've got that's compatable.
Let me know if that works.
P.S. A lot of bookmarklets work in the iPad's Safari; I've got 15 so far (Instapaper, Readability, Open in iCab, Open in Atomic, Search Amazon, Save to GoodReader, etc.). Finding/adding/using Safari bookmarklets is kind of fun ... so I look for 'em. PM me if you want my list - or the scripts.
Great info there, thanks Marilyn.
Btw Pluto, you may already know that you can take a screenshot of anything on the iPad's screen by pressing the Home and the Sleep buttons together for 1 second. You'll find the resulting jpg in the Photo app.
Thanks so much. I used to consider myself to be quite an expert. Back in the days before the internet, I was a sysop of a national BBS. I n recent years, I am more just interested in something working, and not so interested in power techniques, and so have become somewhat of a noob.
I'll PM you.
@chowdown - thanks, I have known that technique, but that only works for information that fits on one screen, and I want to be able to choose the size of what I am copy / pasting.

Just bought it.
I use Penultimate and really like it. The quality of the writing graphics is way better than any others I've seen/tried.
I missed itQuote:
