Why not make use of linuxdoc-sgml? It is able to output to GNU Info,
HTML, ASCII and PostScript. No doubt with a bit of work (editing the
shell script so it doesn't delete the .dvi or tex input documents) you

It works pretty well, most of the Linux HOWTOs are written using it. And
some of the books too. On ftoomsh it works nicely, except that groff
isn't installed, so you can get ASCII output. More info is in
/usr/local/doc/linux-doc (or similar).
