[texhax] LaTeX, Webpages, and PDF files

Hi there,

I have an interdisciplinary question regarding the use of LateX for webpages
and the production of .pdf documents.  Suppose I wish to create a bunch of
faculty resource pages on my website.  I want them easily accessible for
faculty desiring a quick answer to something as well as comprehensively
available in a .pdf document someone could download to read and study on a
more macro basis which would encompass many of the web pages of material.
 Is there any way to do this and only maintain the material in one place so
one could browse website pages or hit a button and download a .pdf file?  I
know how to do the latter in LaTeX but am unfamiliar with using LaTeX to
generate web pages.  If one can do this, is it better to compile the .pdf
documents every time the page material is updated or is there a way to have
the webpage be smart enough to compile the material into a .pdf document
whenever someone wishes to download?  Thanks for any thing anyone could
recommend.  If anyone has good resources for creating web pages with LaTeX
(assuming that is not nonsensical), that would also be appreciated.
