Thanks for the hint, I thought about that, too. But: AFAIK, the
manpages output covers only <refentry>, but not <article> or
<book>. Further, the support of UTF-8 in the free roff tools was
poor, last time I looked. Maybe I'm wrong in both respects?

I'm thinking about post-processing the XHTML before letting w3m
render it to text format. Does anybody have an example XSL file
for processing DocBook XSLs XHTML, so that I do not need to
start from zero? Thanks in advance!
