Does anyone know of a way to convert a PDF file to HTML files, 1 file per page? If the pages can be linked with each other, that is, page 10 contains links to pages 9 and 11, for easier browsing, would be great, but not necessary.

It could be a program, or an online service, both are fine, as long as i can convert the file as explained.

I did find some websites that can convert from PDF to HTML, but they output a single large HTML file that is unfit for memory-deprived phones, and even firefox on a PC chokes on it.

The PDF contains almost entirely of english text only.

I have used Zamzar to convert pdfs to many other formats other than HTML (it does carry out pdf to html) otherwise try from the answers below – Simon Dec 6 '12 at 14:00

On Linux you can use pdf2html. The following is an example:

pdftohtml -p -c -hidden filename.pdf filename.html 

For more details you may consult this page.

There's a graphical version for Windows here.
