At this stage it is not so much you being given ideas as you supplying
enough information.

What parser are you using? Are you using it directly or via a script such
as parsedoc or doc2html.

You say "25%" occurs in the parser O/P. Is that the output direct from
pdftotext, or from doc2html or what?
