Hmm, let's see. Counting the number of items currently in use in the
SGML docs, there's:
* Bulleted lists
* Numbered lists
* Cross references to other doc pages
* Links to pages outside WineHQ
And probably a couple others.
Any Wiki has those too, just in a different (also ASCII-based) syntax.
I hereby volunteer to write a parser that eats MoinMoin (or whatever)
and spits out SGML to use in the conversion process. Problem solved?
I hope so, but please feel free to try and prove me wrong ;-).
Let me know what's desirable and I'll whip something up.
