I'm not sure I understand the question. In general, there is no
well-defined process (to my knowledge) for transforming any HTML 
document into a PDF document since the HTML specification does
not specify how the elements must be rendered.

As to how we create different formats for the HTML Recommendation:
we use html2ps and then ps2pdf, both of which run on Linux.

html2ps is available at  http://www.tdb.uu.se/~jan/html2ps.html.

We do the same for the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines.
I hope this answers your question,
