GNU Texinfo
Produces manuals, ASCII text, and on-line documentation

Texinfo is a documentation system that uses a single source file to produce both online information and printed output. Instead of writing different documents for online presentation and another for printed work, you need have only one document. Texinfo can produce output in plain ASCII, HTML, its own hypertext format called Info, and (using TeX) DVI format. It includes the makeinfo program.
