And (X)HTML is not a "simple markup language"? What is simpler than

That is a silly idea. Do you really know, what a manual page is and what
it looks like? I would really love to know, what would be in your NAME,
SYNOPSIS and OPTIONS sections. In AUTHORS you would put your parents and
in COPYRIGHT your wife? :)

Of course. Why do you expect that article == book == refentry? If all
would have the same meaning, we wouldn't need all of them. <refentry>
fits best to the manual page contents and its format.

JFTR: It's much easier to dump the output of a HTML/PD/PS browser/viewer
into a text file.

PS: You have already been pointed to the xmlresume software, which is
probably what you are looking for.
