What kind of conversion do you expect?

PDF is a printformat with fixed geometry and linebreaks. Each character is positioned individually, the bigger context is (per default) lost.

(Normal) HTML defines texts (lines and paragraphs) which are flexibly drawn and broken dependent on the users display.

Cheers Rolf

UPDATE: you might want to look at solutions using xpdf-tools like pdf2html which produces HTML-files (+ massive CSS) with fixed positioned text... that's what you want?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
