Thanks, this sounds great! I had done a quick search on google for generic 
SGML converter, I never thought about converting the HTML.

I also tried (yesterday) to get docbook2x to run on a P100 with RH7.3 that
I'm using as a router with no luck. It gave errors about "unable to parse
stylesheet". I do have a SourceForge account, I'll try that if the HTML 
conversion doesn't work out. I'd prefer that since we'd rather Cygwin be
self-hosting (i.e., anything that needs to be done can be done on Cygwin). 

Thanks again for your thoughts.
