How to create a Mac OS X keyboard shortcut to print to PDF

I was getting sick and tired of having to go to the mouse to click the PDF button from the Mac OS X print dialog every time I print a web page to PDF (which is really the only "printing" I do anymore). I googled around and found this awesome tutorial about how to set up a keyboard shortcut for this that I never would have figured out on my own in a million years:

Keyboard Shortcut for “Save as PDF…” in OS X at macsparky.com

This only gotcha I ran into is that you have to enter "Save as PDF..." with "as" in all lowercase in order for it to work. Entering "Save As PDF..." doesn't work.
