hi Frank, Yves,

thank you both for the advice.  The ultimate goal is to use one
source for html, ps (via TeX), and help windows available in Pd
itself.  I have been thinking for some time about designing
a common documentation framework for Pd builtins and externals,
and such was the primary purpose of my never released `spy' project,
now all but abandoned due to the Pd API's recent rapid changes.

DocBook is probably the best choice, but I am not familiar with it,
and the output is usually looking very rough (lack of skills?).

And...;) this excerpt from LDP page is a bit too extreme for me:

"In the end, DocBook is more concerned about the way elements work
instead of the way they look.  A big distinction, and one that will
let you write faster, since you don't have to worry about
placement of paragraphs, font sizes, font types, and so on."
