It will be great if tex4ht could read pdf files directly like
lualatex or pdflatex and convert each page on the fly to a
web page image.

Currently I do this to include some PDF file which can be few pages,
into the final latex document

.....
\ifdefined\HCode
\href{note.pdf}{PDF}
\else
\pagestyle{empty}
\includepdf[pages=-,pagecommand={},width=0.98\pagewidth]{note.pdf}
\pagestyle{headings}
\fi
.....

So the HTML generated has a link instead of the actuall
pdf pages as images. This is not too bad a solution for now.

Before, I used to extract all the pdf pages from the file,
convert each page to .svg file and then include these images
using \includegraphics but this is too much work, so now I
use a link.

Thanks
