AsciiDoc
AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing short documents, articles, books and UNIX man pages. AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML and DocBook markups using the asciidoc(1) command. AsciiDoc is highly configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended by the user.

BHL
BHL is an Emacs mode that lets you convert plain TXT files into HTML, LaTeX, and SGML (Linuxdoc) files. The BHL mode handles common font-styles, three levels of sections, footnotes, and any kind of lists, tables, URLs and horizontal rules. It also handles a table of contents: you can browse the toc, insert the toc where you want, and update the sections' numbers with one keystroke.

Catdoc
The program extracts text from Word files while preserving as many special characters as possible. It does not try to preserve Word formatting, but does extract readable text. A Tcl/Tk graphical viewer is included as well, and versions 0.91.2 and above include an Excel file converter.

Cpp2latex
'cpp2latex' converts C++ into LaTeX either for including into existing LaTeX documents or as standalone documents. The current version (2.0) supports syntax highlighting.

Deplate
'deplate' is a tool for converting documents written in an unobtrusive, wiki-like markup to LaTeX, DocBook, HTML, or "HTML slides". It supports embedded LaTeX code, footnotes, citations, bibliographies, automatic generation of an index, etc. In contrast to many wiki engines, it is intended for "offline" use as a document preparation tool.

Docbook2X
'docbook2X' converts DocBook documents to man pages and Texinfo

Docutils
Docutils is a text processing system for processing plaintext documentation into useful formats, such as HTML or LaTeX. It includes reStructuredText, the easy to read, easy to use, what-you-see-is-what-you-get plaintext markup language.

Doxia
Doxia is a content generation framework which aims to provide its users with powerful techniques for generating static and dynamic content.

Doxia can be used to generate static sites in addition to being incorporated into dynamic content generation systems like blogs, wikis and content management systems.

Doxia is used exensively by Maven and it powers the entire documentation system of Maven. It gives Maven the ability to take any document that Doxia supports and output it any format.

It became a sub-project of Maven early in 2006.

EXtrans
eXtrans translates XML documents into other formats or representations. It can output formats HTML, XML, LateX, pictures, sound, or anything else that the python language can manipulate. Those translations are driven by abstract translators (xtrans scripts) embedding python code. The translators are easy to write, since the underlying system habdles all the complicated details of XML parsing, reference resolving, file management and even python programming in a way transparent to the user. This distribution includes GimpClient, a python module for communicating with Gimp. Through it, xtrans scripts can efficiently access a powerful graphics program.

Freedoc
"freedoc.sh" is a short script that, when given a URL for a Google Doc as input, will download that Google Doc in the current working directory in OpenDocument Format without running any of Google's nonfree JavaScript.
