The convertion of a file with tables is now not suported correctly,
but it will be a very good feature.

    complex output mode seems to produce reasonable results.
    Are you not satisfied with results of pdftohtml -c ?

    pdftohtml -c produce an output oriented by <div> and css
    tags placing the text correctly where it was suposed to be,
    but loosing all the tables formating... An output oriented by
    <table>, <tr> and <td> would be much better!!

    I agree with the original poster.

    I use pdf2html to convert documents to read on my palm (The
    current Acrobat Reader is terrible on this platform).
    Tables are viewed as a list of data because the screen isn't
    wide enough to display the formatting, but if it were
    defined as a table, the html parser could handle it better.
