2. Convert the HTML to PS.

And after that you'd end up with a PDF or a gif of something that looked like this:

<html> <head><title>This is an unrendered web page</title></head> <body> . . . </body>

That's not exactly what the OP is trying to do... :-D

    Actually there is a program called html2ps that translates the rendered html to ps. I haven't had much luck getting it installed - but it would serve to do the trick.

      True, but the key word here is "rendered html." Rendering the HTML of the page you want to screen capture is the most important (and most non-trivial) step, and it's that step that was omitted in the post I responded to. :-D

      I tried a similar thing a few years back, getting the page with wget, then using html2ps, then piping it to imagemagik. Unfortunatly it renders the 'screen' over multiple images. I never found a way to have it actually thumbnail it on one page (or after a certain screen size)
