Re-purposing the PDF for HTML content
Everyone knows that in order for information to be of
any use to the general public, it must be capable of being rendered by
any possible platform and operating system out there.
As a consequence, universal formats such as HTML and PDF have become general
household names in the world of data exchange whether it be on the World
Wide Web or in the professional work environment.
No doubt, you’ve experienced the need to convert between the two
formats in such cases where some users don’t have a PDF reader
or if you need to keep the integrity of the HTML web page for others
Notably, with the growing widespread use of the World Wide Web, website
construction using HTML is booming into a growing industry. Everyone
from the professional designer to the most amateur are creating HTML
*Web Designing, HTML and You:
A good website is a good balance between textual and visual data. The
first impression on the 3 second attention span of a Web surfer is important.
Hence, most likely, you’ll spend most of your time on the content
of your site.
In order to achieve a visually appealing site you’ll probably
try to cram all kinds of professional graphics and images on your page,
which translates into hours of fine-tuning with image file formats such
as JPEGs, GIFs, and SWF (flash files). Too much time and too much work.
Also to remember is that the content of a website depends upon its purpose.
Hence, the amount and nature of your data can vary. For some, using external
links and supplementary formats is the most common way to populate a
website. However, it means you’ll also have to consider the amount
of linkage and levels you want your site to contain--that means more
planning and organizing.
Let’s not forget, that web pages work with an underlying programming
language, most commonly HTML. You’ll need to use HTML for embedding
the content onto your web page. That can take hours of tedious encoding
and configuration. Does the amount of work ever cease?
*HTML and the PDF:
A simple way to be efficient?—Incorporate content already converted
directly into HTML. This is where one data exchange format can come in
handy: the PDF.
Conversion using material from a PDF will allow for easier web content
construction. In addition, PDFs retain the graphic integrity of the image,
being capable of rendering vector and bitmap images. So you don’t
have to worry about losing image quality.
By being able to recreate the PDF in HTML, the PDF will be able to be
shown right on the website without having to click on an attachment,
saving you the time of organizing and re-arranging your site.
It may sound unorthodox, but if you have an information container that
can contain and retain the integrity of both the textual and graphical
information you need, why not use it for that purpose?
Certain processes for constructing a website can’t be totally
done away with altogether, like the HTML coding aspect. They can only
*Isn’t PDF to HTML Conversion Limited?:
Converting the PDF format into HTML is nothing new. There are many conversion
software applications out there that provide the functionality--ours
Both the Standard and Professional versions of our Able2Extract v.3.0
software has the HTML conversion capabilities for scanned and native
PDFs. It allows to you convert your PDFs into HTML and your HTML into
PDFs and other formats.
As great as it is, the 3.0 version only lacks the ability to convert
the images from the same PDF file. So while you could convert your HTML
only the textual information would be converted.
*Limited? Not Any Longer. . .:
However, we’ve exceeded our own Able2Extract technology and our
v.4.0 Professional now has better PDF to HTML output. This latest
version has the ability to take a PDF and convert both the graphics and
the text into HTML (CSS).
For instance, you can convert a PDF file made from PowerPoint into HTML
and still have the original colours and designs. So for whatever type
of information you find, you can incorporate that onto your website while
having control over the conversion process.
If you’ve converted documents using our software before, you’ll
know how to perform conversions in the latest version. All you have to
do is open the file in your application, select the text—and images,
you wish to convert and just click on the Convert to HTML icon. The result—pure
HTML content with both images and text!
