How to convert a RTF file to HTML using Java

Hi I have RTF content in database, and I need to display it on the web-page. For that I am using groupdocs to convert the RTF into html format. Groupdocs converts RTF to HTML, but the final out put is in page-format. i.e if I have a small RTF just of two to three lines, HTML out put come with the border of a page size and rest of the page area is kept blank.

I am actually embedding such HTML inside my web-page, where I do not need border or extra space…

Is it possible to convert RTF to HTML in appropriate length only? i.e. if RTF is of just three line, HTML should not claim a whole page… and if RTF is of long length, HTML should not be displayed in multiple pages, instead it should be having single long html only, which I can embed on web page.

For reference check the attached screenshot, I need to get rid of border and space#1,2,3
