I'm not against updating the docs or having any of the things you suggested I just don't want to do the work... or at least all of the work to make it happen.
I don't think I have the scripts I used for the conversion anymore, and a lot of things in the site have had side effects on how things look on those pages. For instance <CODE>

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
