QEMU looks like it's very much worth experimenting with.  And if I get any
results, it looks like it's worth documenting too because their
documentation needs some help.

The other tool I keep talking up is Markdown. 
<http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/>  I prefer the flavor of
this to textile, which does similar things:  convert a simply formatted
text file into XHTML.  I found this when I was looking for a decent
outliner tool (which happens to be how I usually write)--VIMOutliner is
cool, but I couldn't easily get files that I displayed well outside the
outliner software.  Mardown does that.
