You could use several on-line converters.

For PDF to HTML, use SomePDF from: < http://www.somepdf.com/ >.

pdfx is a free online converter that produces HTML and XML at the same time for an uploaded PDF:
http://pdfx.cs.man.ac.uk/

PDF-to-XML is a free non-online converter (local install):
http://download.cnet.com/PDF-to-XML/3000-10743_4-75454167.html

I recommend not clicking on the big green Download Now button (which gets you the CNET installer and probably a bunch of adware). Instead, click on the Direct Download Link below it, which is this URL:
http://dw.cbsi.com/redir?edId=3&siteId=4&oId=3000-10743_4-75454167&ontId=10743_4&spi=3b83694b6f3d48c4cd6ad01350dbacc5&lop=link&tag=tdw_dltext<ype=dl_dlnow&pid=11921881&mfgId=86726&merId=86726&pguid=Uy71IAoOYJMAAAQpdhwAAAEE&ttag=dl_dldirect&ctype=language&cval=en&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.cnet.com%2F3001-10743_4-75454167.html%3Fspi%3D3b83694b6f3d48c4cd6ad01350dbacc5%26dlm%3D0

It should give you a file called <pdf2xmld.exe>. But still be careful with other junk that may come along with it, as I learned from a recent thread here at EE that CNET is moving strongly in the direction of making money that way. Regards, Joe
