Bug#754460: ITP: pdf2htmlex -- Converts PDF to HTML while retaining most formatting

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Johannes Schauer <j.schauer@email.de>

* Package name    : pdf2htmlex
  Version         : 0.11
  Upstream Author : WANG Lu <coolwanglu@gmail.com>
* URL             : http://github.com/coolwanglu/pdf2htmlEX

  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : Converts PDF to HTML while retaining most formatting

pdf2htmlEX converts PDF to HTML while retaining text, format and style as much
as possible. In contrast to other converters like pdftohtml from
libpoppler-utils it makes use of HTML5, JavaScript and modern CSS features.
Even difficult content like PDFs with embedded fonts, multicolumn documents,
scientific papers with complicated figures and mathematical formulas will
mostly be represented correctly. Fallback mode generates HTML pages which
do not require any JavaScript to view them correctly at the expense of a
larger file size.
