Scribd.com shows pdfs produced by TeX in HTML format, its HTML version is 100% like pdf one. How it's possible? Is there a tool for doing that publicly available?

For example see http://www.scribd.com/doc/65397968/xepersian


There is Pdf.js, maybe you could rig something like scribd for yourself with it. You might need to install it on your server and start to twiddle with the JavaScript API, but at least it's an available implementation that should once find it's ways into the official Firefox code base.

  • Could you flesh out this answer a bit? Otherwise it's a bit thin for an answer of itself and should probably be a comment. – doncherry Jul 16 '12 at 12:14
  • @doncherry I'm not really, really familiar with Pdf.js, just stumbled over it recently. The question was if there's such a tool publicly available, so I presumed my answer would be a valid one... I've added an example to my answer, what do you think now? – Habi Jul 17 '12 at 13:38
