I believe the option Floyd is exploring is:

1. Convert existing HTML to (Jade)TeX using Jade
2. Convert the (Jade)TeX to PDF using pdfTeX

Clearly, one of the necessary steps is a DSSSL stylesheet/script that formats the HTML as desired, and I would assume such stylesheets exist .... but I don't specifically know of any.  Can anyone provide specific pointers?

(I have an interest in helping Floyd on this, as I think I made the original suggestion that he consider this approach :-)
