Well, I am very interested in a way to output the FAQ as SGML. I maintain
a linux mini-HOWTO that I am slowly converting to DocBook SGML. It's
format is such that it is not too different from a FAQ, so hope to be able
to use the FAQ tools to deal with my howto... including having a nice
automated way of having it spit out the SGML (for the LDP - Linux
Documentation Project).
