It's not just an issue of format conversion. There is the small matter
of merging changes made off-line by Ulrich with changes made on-line by
other TWiki users. Wikis, including TWiki, are intended to be edited by
and and all participants. A Wiki is the wrong tool if you only want one
person to edit the content off-line.

DocBook/SGML to PDF tools are common.
