Scriptable?  Plus it's an immense burden to put on anyone that just
wants to convert docs from one format to another.

I don't.  But users, and potential users of FreeBSD have thanked me more
than once for providing documentation in a format that they can pull in
to Word, print, and get nice output, where, for whatever reason, HTML or
PDF wasn't appropriate for them.

Too big, and doesn't run properly yet on my platform.

Internet connection, $19.95 a month.  Computer, $799.95.  Modem, $149.95.
Telephone line, $24.95 a month.  Software, free.  USENET transmission,
hundreds if not thousands of dollars.  Thinking before posting, priceless.
