You can generate PDF files using the PDFWriter or Distiller on your =local
machine provided you have purchased a license to do so (the Full =Acrobat
product contains one license). This license doesnt let you generate =PDF
files from across a network or via the web - this is against the =license
agreement (search for End User License Agreement - EULA on the Adobe =site -
or read the Šreadme.txt file on the Acrobat CD).
There are plenty of options however. Sanface have a product that will
generate simple PDF files from the Web (http://www.sanface.com), but I =think
your best option is to investigate PDFLib available from
http://www.pdflib.com (created by Thomas Merz). The PDFLib can be used =via
most programming languages to create PDF files from scratch.
You can license the PDF Library from Adobe, but it is very expense and
usually only used in high end situations. (http://partners.adobe.com).
