What are your output formats?

Interesting…I also have need for footnotes within footnotes and hit that
barrier with rst/markdown or some other non-AsciiDoc format
recently. :-)

Well, considering that ConTeXt can do much more than AsciiDoc, maybe for
regualr web content (blog posts, shorter articles etc.) I could simply
use Markdown without even going to AsciiDoc which is interesting option
only in case of being able to server as single-source format.
