[pmwiki-users] How to create a simple standalone PDF document with internal links

Actually, I misspoke: it's GeneratePDF that requires htmldoc. And yes,  
I don't know where to start with installing that.

You'd think it would be easy in PmWiki to generate a link and an  
anchor that's relative to the current page instead of hard wired to  
the website. Maybe I'm wrong, but I imagine all I need to do is  
generate a web page, a portion of which I can copy and paste into an  
Open Office document, where I can add a header of my choice, and from  
there "print" to a PDF file. Maybe that's not possible - but it seems  
like it would take 2 minutes once I know how to generate the relative  
links and anchors.

Of course, I'd be happy to use one of the PDF recipes, but I don't see  
one that I can quickly figure out how to install (and besides, simpler  
is better).
