By writing a SAX parser for the markup. SAX is simple, there are
SAX parsers for odd things such as RFC822. If the markup
is described anywhere,  it should be doable, and then all you
have to do is to write appropriate stylesheet to convert it
to docbook-xml, as well as to parse your parser to the 
XSLT processor.
