Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Processing html/wml files to Docbook-SGML


I have the unthankfull task to include some WML (Website
Meta-Language) files into a Docbook SGML document. The files are also
avaible as (quite plain) html, but then contain some small tables. So

Most problems (in times of work and making errors while editing) are
the missing </li> in lists, unclosed <p>s and some strange tags
resulting from WML (and my naive way of doing it last year ;-). These
are mainly <key CTRL> constructions which need to be
<keycap>CTRL</keycap> afterwards.

I guess such filtering could be done in Perl with regular expressions, 
but I really have no clue about this topic, so any hints, examples or
pointers to helpfull tools (unix/linux) are very welcome, I am going
