How to convert a website to a PDF file without using online software.

I have a VB .Net application that creates a website by transforming an XML file using a XSL file to create a web page.

I would like now to convert that webpage into a PDF file.

I noticed that there is a lot of software available online to do this for you.
I'm looking to find code that could do this for me without having to download third party software.

Thanks

How can you find code that isn't from a third party?

I'm sorry maybe I didn't state my question correctly.

I'm looking for code that I can insert into my application to do the conversion of the website to a PDF file.

There's a lot of software online to download that can do this for you , but I'm not interested in doing it that way.

Thanks

Does any of the downloadable software have an API/SDK or even a simple command line interface, which you could easily call in your app? I use a lot of downloaded CLI software that I call from my apps, such as the Xpdf utilities, PDFtk Server, GraphicsMagick, ImageMagick, etc.
