Does anyone know how to use applescript to save a PDF in Safari? I want to insert the PDF into a container field once they enter a URL.

Here is the task:

User enter a URL into a FMP field, clicks button

Open that URL in Safari

Safari saves web page as PDF on desktop

FMP7 inserts file as Quicktime (so user can read it in FMP)

Delete PDF on desktop.

I've looked around and can't find anyway to do this without making a PDF printer. This will be in a networked environment so I don't want to set it up a PDF printer on all Macs involved. Is there a way to script the "Save as PDF" button the the print dialog?
