“Txt2tags is a document generator. It reads a text file with minimal markup as *bold* and /italic/ and can convert it to the following formats: HTML, XHTML, SGML, LaTeX, Lout, Unix man page, MoinMoin page, Magic Point presentation (mgp), and PageMaker? 6.0 document. Besides beautifiers, the txt2tags marks also include: headings, links, lists, quotation, images, tables, and more. Other features: automatic TOC, macros, filters, tools, GUI/CLI/Web interfaces, and extensive documentation.”
It’s also very, very cool and makes the creation of both paper and web-based documentation and absolute doddle.
