    Brings back memories of childhood.
    It was the first thing I ever made

    To convert a web page to PDF in Safari you can use a 'bookmarklet' - a small piece of Javascript that will convert the web page to PDF.

    Just create a blank bookmark and enter the text below - in its entirety - in the place where the URL normally goes.

    javascript:pdf_url=location.href;location.href='http://pdfmyurl.com?url='+escape(pdf_url)

    (sometimes, when I paste this bookmarklet into iPad Forum a spurious space gets inserted in the 'http' part of the bookmarklet. It shouldn't be there so, if you see it, you'll have to edit it out.

    Now, when you want to convert a webpage to PDF, simply surf to the page you want to convert and select the above bookmarklet. Safari will convert the page to PDF and you'll then be able to save it in iBooks or another compatible app.

    Too many late nights and early mornings and, I guess, the red wine last night didn't help..:(
