PDF generation from XHTML in a LAMP environment

Question!

Can anyone recommend a good server-side PDF generation tool that would work in a Linux environment. I want easy as possible, pass it a XHTML file (with images) and have it generate a PDF from the rendered source.

I don't have a massive budget, but anything under $1000 should be alright.

I used HTMLDoc about 8 years ago and it did a good job of turning HTML tables with some basic formatting into a decent PDF report. There also seems to be an open source version as well.

You could take a look at using OpenOffice via the OpenOffice API to load your XHTML document and export a PDF version. There is a bit of a learning curve to using the OpenOffice API but it is very powerful and can be run in server mode on systems without any graphical interface. It performs well - we've used it on some internal projects.
