AsciiDoc a way to generate XHTML and other things

I came across an interesting program that has been going since 2002. It turns old fashioned ASCII formatted help files into a variety of formats.

It might be of interest to people in this forum.

I haven't seen an application that I'll use immediately, but wouldn't be surprised if something occurs to me.

From a quick read it produces HTML, XHTML and DocBook natively and the DocBook can then be converted to HTML, PDF, EPUB, DVI, LaTeX, roff, and Postscript using additional tools. (I haven't tested it myself except to run CSE across the home page. The code comes from the Linux world, but there is a Windows installer. I guess the first three formats are easy to make but some of the others might be a challenge under Windows.)

Here's a link to the home page of the project http://bit.ly/ezObsN.
