This one works out pretty nice and compiles of the box (TeX code is
not perfect, but all the examples compiled).

The parser needs some tweaking for special cases that were not handled
by the author and some latex needs to be converted to ConTeXt (minor
issues), but it indeed seems nice. (The major problem is that it lacks
any documentation, but that can be circumvented.)

Thanks a lot.

As for why I prefer wiki to html as the main source: wiki is somewhat
more basic and has a bit more structure. Even if I start from HTML, I
hardly have any less work.

PS: now I only need to figure out how to compile the program (for
which I'm trying to prepare an acceptable/printable/readable version
of the manual) without crashing ... :)
