Enough about crappy formats, lets cut code (even if its for documentation 
rather than an executable :)

Are you doing SGML Docbook or XML Docbook? What tools?

And what are you using to generate man page formats? I recently did a 
conversion of the OpenSLP documentation, and it looks OK in every format except 
for the one man page that I need a table for - its fine in HTML and PDF, but 
the man page rendering isn;t there. It looks kinda like the "strings | less"
