Assuming you have Windows you could try converting with MobiCreator ===>>> http://www.mobipocket.com/en/downloa...ilscreator.asp
It creates a PRC file which you can then convert to EPUB, MOBI etc using Calibre. I convert a lot of PDFs from gov, edu, org etc sites. My experience is that MobiCreator is about as good it gets for freeware, and better than many Pay4Me products. I think it deals with the lost 'll' problem, I can't recall getting any since I started using it - I spell check the EPUB's I create.
If you want to try an alternative to PDF Creator I suggest Bullzip ===>>> http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php
- I use it to 'print' locked PDF's so I can annotate with PDF xChange.
Good Luck - BR
