About two month ago I asked on the list how to handle PDF...
several answers came and two converters were installed:
pdftotex.exe (PDF => TEXT) sometimes is good ; author 
Derek B. Noonburg; and I have a PDF to HTML (cann't find that one... is
"somewhere" in my computer.
But no images!
So if PDF contains images I ask the author to send me the stuff in a
"normal" format... which they do (9 out of 10 times).
They want to tell or show me something... so it is their job to do this
in a format I can read and in most cases the PDF-file is not the
original text or image... originaly composed in WORD, WP or something
like that. Than I say: "please send me that for I cann't read PDF
containing images" and as stated they very often do.

And if they don't... I will never read their wise words and diagrams.
