Because upstream claimed in the issue I filed (since you didn't want to
do that....) that it works
(http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=77679) so I just tried
it myself: That's not true. pdftotext (what is pdf2text?)
creates a textfile with Foo and Bar in it, as it should with a slide
cotaining Foo and Bar and a image (a rectangle)

I don't know what google tries to index it, though.

For HTML, you seem to be right.
