The Web Capture Plugin that comes with Acrobat (called the AcroSpider)
cannot be automated using IAC as there is no interface for it. You can
however write a C++ plugin to get to it.

There might be a slim chance that an 'ExecuteMenuItem' might be available
for Javascript - would could be done via the Forms API - but you'd have to
check in the FormsAPI and also the AcroJavascript PDF's.

The last time I checked you could open an HTML document via IAC in Acrobat,
but it didn't give you the ability to save it once it had converted it to
PDF, not sure if anybody (Karl?) has got a workaround for that?

Visit the Developer Site and download/view the
Acrobat SDK, and also read the FAQ (accessible from CodeCuts for more information about Capture OLE interface -
I would say there isn't, but I might be wrong.

There are other ways to convert HTML 2 PDF rather than use Acrobat (eg
HTML2PS, then automate Distiller etc).
