Topic: html to pdf retaining links

I have this program which generates this html file with some links in it (href...)

Now my users want this html page to be converted into pdf as they want the functionality of zooming in and out of the html page.

I have bought Adobe Acrobat 6.0 standard and was thinking about writing a VB program to convert my html file to pdf. However i am facing a few problems :-

1) First of all , is there an easier way to add the functionality of zooming to a html document than converting it to pdf?

2) When i try to create the pdf using the print property on the acrobat 6.0 , the pdf generated loses all the links i had in my html.

3) Is there sample code out there than i could use to generate pdf from html files by passing in the html file and the name of the pdf file that i want generated as parameters?

4) would i need to purchase the acrobat SDK in order to do this?
