        strline = htmlstr.ReadToEnd

        ' Code to convert to pdf
        Dim doc As New Document(PageSize.A4, 8, 80, 50, 30, 65)
        Dim fsNew As New StringReader(strline)
        Dim document As New Document(PageSize.A4, 80, 50, 30, 65)

        Using ofilestream As New FileStream(Request.PhysicalApplicationPath + "Output related PDF file", FileMode.Create)
            PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, ofilestream)
            Using stringReader As New StringReader(strline)
                Dim parsedList As New ArrayList()
                parsedList = html.simpleparser.HTMLWorker.ParseToList(stringReader, Nothing)
                ' parse each html object and add it to the pdf document
                For Each item As Object In parsedList
                    document.Add(DirectCast(item, IElement))
