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.
