Save web pages for offline viewing Internet
With OSX's built-in .pdf capability, saving web pages is super easy and you get to capture the full beauty of the page (layout, colors, and images intact).

Here are the quick and easy steps:
  1. From your browser (OmniWeb, etc.) press Command+P (or select File -> Print).
  2. At Print window, click on "Preview".
  3. You'll be brought to Preview program; select File->Save as PDF.
That's it. Happy viewing your saved, perfectly-preserved web pages.

I just tried it, and it worked fine. Do you have a printer installed in OS X? That may be causing the problem...

No need for Preview.app

There's no need to use Preview.app; at the print dialogue box, change popup menu from "Copies & Pages" to "Output Options", select on "Save as PDF File", click "Save....".
