I've had the immense pleasure to convert an ASCII version of the NetBSD
3.1 and 3.0.2 release announcements to DocBook/XML today. Juggling with
all the nested lists became boring pretty fast, and so I remembered to use
a different tool that I've learned the other day:
MoinMoin Wiki can do a DocBook export. I've it installed already, and so
copied the ASCII version into it, fixed the markup and then did an export
As the document was all in 1 line, I had to push it through 'xmllint
--format', but after that taking the relevant parts from what MoinMoin
made into htdocs was just a matter of copy&paste. (The frame for the text
was already done before).
This approach saved me from going insane tonight...
