Hi guys,

Perhaps you can help me out in the castration of Apple.

Our doc team really hates writing in troff, but is getting used to HTML and XML.
If I want them to create better man pages, I need to help them adapt.


1. Surely someone has defined an XML schema for man pages, right?

2. Are there translators in both directions?

3. Is there a good XML authoring tool that supports this?

4. Could we get away with shipping man pages in XML only?
