     In this section we are going to see how to convert the pure html and css code to pdf using itextsharp and itexsharp.xmlworker dll's.

Download itextsharp.xmlworker.dll
Downlaod itextsharp.dll

     You should use the same version of the itextsharp.dll and itextsharp.xmlworker.dl

If you not use the same version you will see like the following error.

itextsharp.xmlworker and itextsharp error higher version
Client Side code:

 <asp:HiddenField runat="server" ID="selectedhtml" />

<asp:ImageButton ID="lnkPDF" ImageUrl="~/App_Themes/Blue/images/adobe.jpg" ToolTip="Export to PDF"
                        runat="server" OnClick="lnkPDF_Clicked"></asp:ImageButton>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

<div id="testdiv">
  <div id="tdiv1">
    <img src="sample.jpg" />


     var btnobj = document.getElementById("<%=lnkPDF.ClientID%>");
     btnobj.addEventListener("click", myfun);

     function myfun() {

             document.getElementById('<%=selectedhtml.ClientID%>').value = document.getElementById('testdiv').innerHTML.replace(/(<img[^>]+)/g, "$1 /");



HTML code are converted into xhtml and after only it will process so we have some limitation eg) you should need to close the image tag and etc.
If you are get the innerHTML content the image close tag won't get you so you can replace the image close tag by using the following line.

document.getElementById('<%=selectedhtml.ClientID%>').value = document.getElementById('testdiv').innerHTML.replace(/(]+)/g, "$1 /");

Server Side Code:
protected void lnkPDF_Clicked(object sender, EventArgs e)

        Document Doc;
        Doc = new Document(PageSize.A4, 10f, 10f, 50f, 20f);

        string filename = "PaySlip";         
        string outXml = selectedhtml.Value;
        outXml = "<style>#tdiv1{background:red;color:white;}</style>" + outXml;
        outXml = outXml.Replace("px", "");
        outXml = outXml.Replace("<br>", "<br/>");

        MemoryStream memStream = new MemoryStream();
        TextReader xmlString = new StringReader(outXml);
        using (Document document = new Document())
            PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, memStream);
            byte[] byteArray = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(outXml);
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(byteArray);
            XMLWorkerHelper.GetInstance().ParseXHtml(writer, document, ms, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

        Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=" + filename + ".pdf");

No need to put the px in styles, so you can replace the px to "" value by using the following line.
outXml = outXml.Replace("px", "");

innerHTML won't close the <br> tag so you should need to replace the <br> tag to <br/>.
outXml = outXml.Replace("<br>", "<br/>");
