I worked with this program as well. While it is
very useful it leaves some to be desired-- especially in terms of embedded
fonts. Additionally, it seems that the original developers have moved on. But
for me it was absolutely indispensable. In a project I did I combined this with
ghostscripter to generate a png of the background of a printed document-- then
wrote a frame/line detect algorithm to get layouts. I combined all of it with a
custom XSLT to generate very simple SVG (lines and rects instead of paths)-- all
in all I agree very useful-- many thanks to the developers...
Can you describe a little bit more what you did
with the results?
All the best,

Subject: [xml-dev] nice program for
converting PDF to XML
After fooling around with several shareware programs that only convert
the first few pages of an Acrobat file, or only work for a few days, I found
an open source utility on sourceforge that worked so nicely that I wanted to
give it wider publicity among people who might find it handy. See http://pdftohtml.sourceforge.net and
A Windows binary is available.
