    Hi all
    I have used PDF2Web Converter by Aplus.Net to convert a 400 page ebook (my own work).

    This makes one big graphic for each page, with images wherever they are on the page/graphic; rather than separate images.
    And text is then done line by line in position on top (see below):

    <div style="position:absolute;top:202;left:81"><nobr><span class="ft0">This can be helpful in keeping pests away from</span></nobr></div>
    <div style="position:absolute;top:222;left:81"><nobr><span class="ft0">your food crops. It is when two or more plants</span></nobr></div>
    ETC.

    This reads OK on the page, but do search engines parse the text properly?

    The quality is good and the pages resize (zoom) ok. I would remake the nav and links then job done. To the user this is fine. But I want the traffic from Google etc.

    If a line goes over 2 lines, the words wil be joined together ie above - fromyour

    This coule be solved by adding a space before the end </span> (global change to all pages).

    I can hand make the pages but this is a long process.

    Any advice welcome
    Thanks
    Geoff

    Thanks for the reply.
    I think I will put up the site and then see if it is spidered properly.

    There are a number of reliable PDF converters although I design my books in InDesign and then export it to PDF 5.0.
