we have a web form that is filled out by the user and upon submit, we would like this form to be converted to PDF and emailed to us as an attachment.

we have tested following php libraries for generation pdf from html:
But no one is providing facility to convert html tags like "input ", "select" into pdf.  But the selected form fields value (data) can be shown into pdf or word.
