Daniel J. Bernstein had something to say on that subject, two decades
ago. See the "Notes" section of .

I generate both manual pages and HTML from a common DocBook XML master
in the nosh toolset. And the DocBook XML is itself readable directly
with a WWW browser. is
a copy of one such DocBook XML master, for example. It's on the WWW,
and the packages also install it locally, for off-line reading.

M. Pape did some of the manual pages for some operating system's
versions of daemontools, converting M. Bernstein's HTML pages into
roff. For djbwares I converted everything into DocBook XML, and the
same holds for djbwares as for the nosh toolset. There is a DocBook XML
master that one can view in a WWW browser directly (both on-line and
off-line), generated HTML pages, and generated manual pages readable
with man. is a
copy of one such DocBook XML master, for example. This is the source
for the "man setuidgid" manual and the source for .

I even filled in the manual pages that M. Pape hadn't done and that M.
Bernstein hadn't originally written in HTML, and updated some of the
doco. See
