You might want to screen-scrape your monitor and then store it into an image-file ;-)

HTML is the format a website is written in.
TIF is an image format.
Don't see how you could ever convert one to the other?

The easiest way would be to use the html editor toolkit and draw the page on a java.awt.Image and then use an ImageIO TIFF provider to write that image out to a tiff file. I am not aware of any free TIFF providers, but there are a few commercial ones available.

 Hello,
  You can capture your screen (eg, press "Print Screen" or use tools from software companies). Then paste it into a graphics editor and save as tif file.

Along the same lines as orangehead911's suggestion, try using JEditorPane to display your html and paint it's contents to a blank image.

Wonderful suggestion. Where does Java come into it ;-) ?

Although the question is short it is not easy to be solved. I know that! :-)
My first thought was like orangehead911 and objects suggestions.
Yes, any free TIFF providers is exactly what I'm looking for! This engine must work at the server side, so I don't think that including html editor toolkit is the best solution, but as I can see it is the only one?!?!
Could you please give me more information about how to export this content to the tiff file? Because I have never used any image providers.
Thanks in advance!

Actually I need a special kind of tiff /as I understood a minutes ago/, and I have a tool that generates exactly this kind of tiff from postscript. So, do you know any approach how to generate postscript from html file?
Thanks in advance!

Hmm, if you could automate it, you should be able to utilize a post script printer drivers and print to a file, which you could then feed to the PS->TIFF renderer. I haven't done it myself, but it should be possible. Otherwise, you could generate the PS yourself. PS is a programming language. You could try printing out a page using a PS driver, and open the file in a text editor and see how it works. It is a simple language and you should be able to solve the problem like that fairly easily, especially since your dealing with text.

I found the solution by myself.

1.  html->pdf by parsing the html file and writing to the pdf file
2.  and after that converting the pdf file to tiff image by using Ghostscript!

That's the solution!
So...I deserve the points! :-)
