Topic: looking for an html to pdf solution

My company is developing software that needs to be able to generate PDFs from html files that are generated by applying an XSLT stylesheet to an XML document. The result of the transform is a standards-compliant html document.
We're looking for a COM or .Net component that will simply convert this sorta-HTML file into a PDF. Many of the toolkits that I've seen want you to, for example, feed them XML that describes the layout of your document. Others, such as ActivePDF WebGrabber, which seems like it might work, are simply outside our client's price range.
The documents are being created in an ASP.Net application (IIS) so obviously this precludes the use of any PHP or Java apps without a certain amount of pain involved.
Does anyone know of a product that might meet our requirements? CSS2 support is an absolute must and it would be nice if we could feed it the XML document and have it apply the XSLT for us, rather than applying the transform to produce an HTML file and then sending it to the component. We also need the ability to produce these PDF files in non-standard page sizes, such as 3.5 x 2.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
