I don't see where this conversion would be necessary. And, to clarify,
both, DocBook and LinuxDoc, are SGML. They are different DTDs
(Document Type Definitions). A DTD is the file which contains the list
of valid commands on each context and it's the responsible for the
command names. IMHO the uso of DocBook is the best choice. DocBook is
a lot more powerful and complete than LinuxDoc (I've used LinuxDoc for
a long time and even written some articles teaching how to use it). If
you're writing a new HOWTO, do it in DocBook. If you're going to learn
SGML, learn DocBook.

If anybody in the list needs help using DocBook, I can help on using
it. I'll try to convert some tutorials I've made for my working team
to English and submit it to you, so that we also have a HOWTO on
writing with DocBook... What about?
