I suspect we have at least one Perl-hater in this thread already... but
I like Perl's POD.  pod2html, pod2latex, pod2man, and pod2text are all
"stock" and CPAN has converters to PDF, VMS HELP, and a bunch of formats
I've never heard of.

Pod::HTML2Pod turns HTML into POD, and seems to give decent result
when run against the html documents that come with 4.1.80-rc1.
