Subject Docbook Conversion Tools
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2004 20:27:27 GMT
The following tools are already available to convert various source file 
formats to Docbook.

The list below is pruned from http://wiki.docbook.org/topic/DocBookTools.
Only tools I thought may be of use to the Forrest Docbook Plugin are listed. 
Each would need evaluation and voting before deciding to include.
The pipe would be 
someformat -> docbook -> xhtml
