Re: parsing post script
ghostscript includes a pstext utility to extract text: it does a reasonable but not 100% accurate job (and includes the full ghostscript postscript interpreter).
If you turn off the ps2ascii simple mode (remove the "-dSIMPLE" argument),
GhostScript outputs font and positioning information for each string. You
can use that information to eliminate headers & footers, identify elements
to tag, and so forth.
Exegenix (http://exegenix.com/) has a commercial solution for converting PostScript or PDF to XML; it looks intriguing.
