My client uses doPDF to print HTML pages from the .net website I created for him. He would like the files names to be more specific.

Can you give me some advice on the Algorithm used to generate the file name?

Unfortunately there isn't a certain algorithm after which the files are named when printed.

When a file is converted with doPDF, it will have the name that was sent to the printer queue by the application from which the printing is done. Office applications such as Word for example have simplified names for files when sent to the printer. Browsers on the other hand send whatever name the file or link contains without doing any modifications.

Thank you.
