Thanks for the info - so you basically say that there is an extension 
that takes wikicontent and transforms it to docbook XML?

After a quick research i found this thingy which seems to produce ok 
results pretty flexible:


Such a plugin for a simple wiki would be great since it combines two 
advantages: content is fast to edit and it gives you a nice printable 
version if needed.
It would be also great if other users could edit the docs, so there is 
no dependance on the extension writer and everything is in place.
