My apologies... it was in fiesty and then incorporated into
poppler-utils for Gutsy. You can install via:

sudo apt-get install poppler-utils
and then:
man pdftohtml - or just pdftohtml without argument and it will show you
the options.

Not that there are quite a few handy tools in poppler-utils:
This package contains pdftops (PDF to PostScript converter), pdfinfo
(PDF document information extractor), pdfimages (PDF image extractor),
pdftotext (PDF to text converter), and pdffonts (PDF font analyzer).
