How can I capture my blog pages as images to import into InDesign? (Tryin' to create a portfolio here...)

I am a non-designer whipping together a print portfolio in InDesign to submit as part of an application to a design program. As part of this, I'd like to include quality images a couple of websites I created in the past.
I can note the URL on the print portfolio, but it is preferable if I supply a USB key or CD with a pdf of the sites. And I need images of the site for the print portfolio regardless. The problem I am running into is converting a site into a pdf that does not do anything funky with the text or images. Specifically, I have been running into issues with pdfs screwing up the text ("Categories" becomes "C A T E" or the fonts - standard ones like Courier - are switched to Times or the like). The blogs are hosted on TypePad.
Screen shots are suboptimal as the content I'd like to capture in a single go extends beyond the frame of my browser.
If I could figure out how to save the site as XML, it looks like I could then import it into InDesign and create a pdf from there.
