On the Board website, we have most of the syllabuses downloadable as
MS Word docs anyway - but if you are missing any document that you
need in text-editable format - email me and I can get one of my
desktoppers to send you what you need. That is the easiest converter
- get someone else to do it for you!
On the PDF to editable format issue - why not try Adobe's own converter?
You can also send a PDF as an attachment to an e-mail message, and
your documents will be sent back to you - converted. For plain text,
mail the attached PDF to pdf2txt at adobe.com. For HTML, mail the
attached PDF to pdf2html at adobe.com.
Try it out - it is interesting to see what the conversion issues are
(eg Tables), but it gives you quick access to the text to
cut-and-paste into your programs.

>I'm a etacher in NSW and I want to convert some of our syllabi which

>>Hope this helps,
