But then that might not be the best idea, as HTML has no way to 
represent vector data, it would probbably ether ignore all the vectors 
(text), or just produce a full page image of all the text. (that would 
preserve all the layout though, it might help not to expect exactly 
the same layout in the HTML file, as you cant control all of the text 
sizes / fonts ect.

one thing that i did think of, does the text not wrap at the ends of 
lines correctly / have funny spaces in the middle of the words (li k e 
t his) because thats what happened to me when i tried to copy+past 
text out of a scribus pdf before
