I cannot fully answer your question, because I don't work with compiled html help, but I guess, the first step is to go from the vector graphics format PDF to the markup language HTML. For this there exists a command line tool called pdftohtml which you can find in the poppler-utils package. Since converting from a graphics format to a formatted text format is not trivial, results may vary. –  soulsource Mar 27 '13 at 14:00
