The docbook route for ant has been discussed a few times previously, I
even got the first part of the manual converted to pdf via saxen+fop,
but the discussion has revolved around a way of making the
documentation buildable - ie extracting it from metadata placed in the
Java src.

Please search the archives for previous documentation discussions.

I'm sure other people will chime in sooner or later too :)
