And from this thread they have a number of 'required' formats
to go with their material?

If the format you're wanting is for a standard ( I was using
WordPerfect 5.1 last time I wrote for them!) that still doesn't
make it a commercial target IMHO. PDF yes, but going more
specific than that... I don't think so.
   Were they ever to catch up.... Then a schema derived from
docbook/DITA etc might make sense, but I just can't see
that happening, can you?
