  Dang... that was too easy!  Is documentation on the graphicx package
available on the Web?

  This is coolness.  I'll need to play with it a bit to get format
conversions to happen nicely, but I can handle that.

  DocBook is one option, but it is definately a little on the heavy
side, and I'm not convinced the available extension to support
documentation of OO constructs is quite right.  I think I want
something a bit lighter for authoring.
