I have tried a great many software packages for PDF conversion. I own the latest Adobe Acrobat, and it is one of my least favorites for this task. DocUnPDF works very well (Mac and Win versions available, $60 or so) and will output in many formats including html and lrf. The company's reps are pretty nice, and will work with customers- for example, issuing license codes for 2 installations of the software when you buy it, so you can have one install at home and one at work.

My other favorite is Gemini, by Iceni, a British software company. Its output from pdf to html is the best I have seen, but you do pay a price- $159 when I bought it. It's absolutely top-of-the-line.

Gemini and UnPDF are the only 2 softwares out there I would recommend for this task.
