I generated the pdf of the deverloperworks site and it looks just fine. If your purpose is just to read the articles then I don't see why you would want anything else. If you want the frills and colors, then do what mohnish suggested.. Say "File -> Save As" and select the type as *.mht, thats a web archive. I tried that too, its even better than the pdf!
It all just depends if you want to play with js or read the article.
