PDF to HTML conversion Bookmarklet

I just wrote a bookmarklet for converting PDF documents to HTML. The conversion tool I am using in the bookmarklet is the one at the Adobe website.

Here is my PDF to HTML converter bookmarklet:

PDF to HTML Bookmarklet

Either drag this link to your browser's toolbar or right click it and add it to your bookmarks/favourites. Then when you want to convert a PDF document to HTML simply click the link in your toolbar or click the bookmark/favourite.

When you activate the bookmarklet it asks you if you want to convert the current browser document, if the current document in your browser is a PDF file and is the one you want to convert then click the "OK" button, if the PDF document you want to convert is not currently loaded in your browser, but you have the link for it, click cancel, then you will be presented with a dialog box that asks you to type/paste in the URL of the PDF document you want to convert to HTML.

The conversion is pretty basic, it basically seems to just strip out any textual content from the PDF and create an HTML document with that.

UPDATE 15/01/2005 This bookmarklet no longer works, please see my new updated bookmarklet

How to setup WebDAV and FTP on your Spymac account.

OK so you may or may not know this but Spymac were the first company to freely offer an email account with 1 Gigabyte of storage. Well actually thats old news, but the other great thing about them is they also offer webspace (lots of it). Your website is basically your Spymac Username followed by so if my SpyMac username was johnsmith my webspace would be at and my ftp server would be at and my WebDAV folder would be at

I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to connect to Spymac using WebDAV and FTP today, as I wanted to upload a file. The Spymac site itself, though it offers these cool features, doesnt have a very easy to find Help system or a list of FAQs for people who want to actually use their services. Maybe thats the point, if everyone used all their webspace, im sure it would soon bring their whole system to its knees.

Anyway WebDav is easy to use on Windows 2000 and WinXP you can just goto your Network Neighbourhood, then "Add a network place" then just type in your WEBDav folder url, in this case it would be

this will add the folder as a computer/folder in your "Network Neighbourhood", when you click to open the folder, a dialog box will pop up asking you for your username and password, these are the same as for your email account and also for your FTP account.

Im quite new to WebDAV, i havent quite figured out what the advantages of it over FTP are, but it integrates quite well into Windows Explorer anyway. It lets you just drag and drop files to and from it, treating it like just another drive on your network :)
