Mark, I think this would be quite valuable to put on trilug.org. I
think if we're going to be serious about generating doc, we ought to do
it right in the first place by using a format such as DocBook which can
be automatically re-formatted into a bunch of other doc formats. For
example, I mirror a large subset of the LDP on my Palm Pilot so that I
always have all that good doc with me (Plucker format).

I've been meaning to get into DocBook for all my new writing so I will
definitely check that out. Thanks.
