PDF to HTML5 conversion – Which one is the PDF??

So here is a screenshot of a PDF file and our HTML5 conversion, writing the text onto the canvas as Shapes –  a new option for this weeks release. It makes for a larger  file (our guys are working on this) but gives you a pretty good version. Or we can convert it to text giving you much smaller files at a cost of absolute accuracy – we give you the choice.

So which one is the PDF?
