not.  I've encountered very few PDF documents that I could actually do this
with, so that my impression is "I cannot."  Regardless of the truth, that's

Right, a bundle it will be, then.

If you're doing a bundle of HTML, you can also just wrap it up into a compiled HTML help file (.chm) using HTML Workshop from MS (hhc.exe) and a couple of additional files to guide hhc.exe through the process.

This is pretty convenient for Windows users typically (I'd prefer it over a folder of HTML).
