Export retaining original CSS look

Bug Description

New Feature Enhancement.
At the Scottish Mahara User Group conference it was suggested that while Mahara pages can be made to look great, the result when they are exported (stripping CSS) looks terrible. Is there a way to retain the original layout and CSS? If this would substantially increase the file size it might be worth having it as an optional tickbox.
As alternative would be to have the option to export pages as PDF, retaining the opriginal look and feel (perhaps collections could be exported as a set of pages within a single PDF document). Obviously audio/video objects might be more problematic, but any static media would be straightforward as this would essentially be a screenshot of the page.
Regards, Gordon.

The ability to export as PDF would greatly help tutors who have to monitor daily/weekly progress through a particular task using, for example, a blog.
