For the LDP environment, I use sgml2text and then pipe it thru a
simple script I wrote that rips out all the extra blank lines.
Yes, this appeared to be a bug (in sgml-tools 1.0.9, which
is what we use).

Since there are no tables available in linuxdoc, perhaps
piping a single-file HTML variant thru lynx would produce
the 'best' plain text output?
