Why highlighting doesn't work

Thomass is correct that k2pdfopt converts to images, so no highlighting can be done. I am hoping to add OCR capability to k2pdfopt soon (via Google's Tesseract engine). I have a test version working on English text. I haven't been able to find as much programming time as I've wanted to this summer, but eventually I'll get it released.
