in reply to PDF Parsing

I have tried this a few different ways, and here is my favorite:

Use pdftohtml with the -xml option:

pdftohtml -xml file.pdf

In pdftohtml-0.36, this creates invalid XML output. But it is easy to fix up this XML with a few regular expressions to create valid XML. Then use your favorite XML parser to process the XML. My favorite XML parser is Twig.

It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
