I think you need some JavaScript to grab the URL of the iframe, and then some AJAX to send it to a PHP script, which will then request it, and then convert the page to a valid PDF file. The AJAX will retrieve the PDF file, and prompt the user with a download.

Above can easily be done like:
$lines = file(;

An alternative to using JavaScript, could be to simply feed the script with the URL, using a normal link, and a URL parameter. But this assumes you know the URL of the iframe.

But thi is really complicated stuff, not something i would waste my time figuring out, unles it was an really important feature, used by many people on my site. I would simply show them a plain text or HTML file of the content, which require much less work to implement.

I would recommend you look at some HTML to PDF script in PHP, (or whatever language that your server supports).

Also keep in mind, that a lot of user tend to get annoyed by PDF files. Its a proprietary format, which requires additional software from adobe to be read.
