    Default PDF@HTMLl5

    I have a requirement where I have to convert the PDF document to HTML5. I do not want to use any available tool achieve this. I want to write my own code to achieve this. Being java developer I have started with iText but I saw that, iText just extract the text from PDF and does not keep the formatting layout on PDF.

    Can someone please guide which API i should use to achieve this? below is my high level requirement.

    1-Extract the text from the PDF without loosing formatting layout.

    2-extract the images if any.

    3-Retain the formatting in the newly converted HTML5 page same as that of PDF page.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Do you understand the structure of a PDF document and how it handles layout and the like?
    If not then you'll need to read up on that before you start.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
