Teledynamics : HTML2DB...the Holy Grail of DocBook Converters?

"Don't get too excited: Asking a robot to convert HTML to DocBook is like asking a machine to take a truckload of bricks and build you a house. Still, a robot can get you part of the way there; this package contains a shell script and a DSL file which take a first stab at converting well-formed HTML into quasi-DocBook-like markup. It's not the philosopher's stone, it can't possibly pass the NSGMLS test, but it might save you some work translating old HTML docs to DocBook." Or, for kicks, try playing this telephone game five times and see what comes out at the other end...
doc -> html -> pod -> docbook -> html -> doc
