At this point, the leading candidate is simplified docbook - but I need
to do some more docbook reading before I can say for sure.  Because some
of the subprojects want to generate printed docs, I think that puts us
into XML land -- as if we weren't already.  So xhtml is out.  Stylebook
is out because we're the only ones who use it.  That leaves some form of
docbook.

If you know any graphics type people that want to help, send them my
way.  Otherwise, we're stuck with ugly.
