    Hi You can try with the trial version of pd4ml which actually converts the HTML to PDF, you can get the logic of HTML to PDF in the open source. The same can be retreated for a pdf doc as well. The usuall result of pdf decomposing is mostly MSO HTML, so you can parse the same and get the desired content out.
