DocBook (http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/) is an agreed upon SGML/XML DTD used for writing books and papers about computer hardware and software.

Have a look at the wiki as well: http://wiki.docbook.org/topic

See also http://freshmeat.net/projects/docbook2x/ for a tool to convert DocBook formatted files into Texinfo or man page formatted files.

The docbook sf-project includes xslt and dsssl stylesheets. Normally that would be towards pdf, html, xml, rtf, but I would think tex as well, texinfo I'm not sure about. VL 16/6-03.

A bit old but impressive list of tools about Docbook: http://www.dpawson.co.uk/docbook/tools.html includes many pointers to SourceForge-hosted projects (db2latex, etc.). CM 17/6/03.

I wonder if http://freshmeat.net/projects/remark/ might help convert some docs into this format...
