Difficulties to do wget && html2pdf or something else
connected to wget in one command :

Example : ' wget http://www.google.co.uk/ '
and it is impossible to know which filename is saved.
In this example the result will be saved in /home/"username"
as ' index.html ' ... And if you have several pages, more
than one can have the name "index.html"
(If you try "Save page as" , the filename is "Google" )

So if it should work, the file would have to be redirected
to an empty directory and renamed with "wildcard" and moved
to a third place.

But may be you can make a script doing that ??

Code:
wget -O - www.google.com | html2text > google.txt
Welcome to the world of STD out, pipes and redirects!
I didn't have html2pdf, but I'm sure you get the idea.
