There has been much discussion of this in the SVG list, and, in my view, 
you are so far into the presentational world at this point that you 
should be using SVG, not HTML, if you really need this sort of presentation.

Incidentally, with regard to my previous comment about the lack of a 
structural overlay, comparable with tagged PDF, in SVG, I guess one 
could use XSLT, for this purpose, but you wouldn't be using a language 
optimised for the job.
