I don't think there is such an option (hope I'm wrong). You could do the following - convert to ePUB, rename the file with .zip and extract it. The content is all in html format. Just open a few to figure out the directory structure and delete the rest of the files in there.

But really, there are plenty of pdf to html converters out there (if I recall correctly, something like "pdf2html" should be a good start to google).

There isn't an option. You can get html from the debug output, or by doing exactly as thrawn_aj said - convert to epub. Epub IS html, you just need to extract it from the zip. If you want a single large html file you should also go into the epub output settings and disable splitting on pagebreaks and set the split size to 2048K or larger.

Easier to use the debug output, as you'll get the exact same HTML as you would in the epub, pre-split. That way you can have both HTML and a split, readable epub from a single operation.
