# Comparing of pdf and HTML for online preview
1. We know pdf depends on some plugins of the browser. But the natural file-type for the online preview (and online searching) is the HTML, which is independent of web-browser, hard-devices.
2. HTML version can be embedded to the home-webpage, and provides more advanced features, such as link to references/databases, link to the authors' homepage, social-reading, writing comments, link to facebook/twitter, etc…
3. The HTML online reading experience is better than PDF online reading. The reader will never leave out the web-browser. 

If you are interested in pdf2htmlEX, please give us some comments. Thank you for your time reading this.

Another option for publishing PDF on the web is WebViewer:

   ** you don't have permission to see this link **

 

The WebViewer has many advantages over conversion to HTML (e.g. DRM/security, better reading/viewing experience, search, collaboration tools, easier management, etc.).

 

The same technology behind WebViewer could also be used for high-quality PDF to HTML/EPUB conversion. For some examples see ** you don't have permission to see this link **(command-line utility):

e.g.: docpub my.pdf -f html
