References for TeX and Friends is an ongoing project which provides a help file for LaTeX (and its friends like ConTeXt, Metapost, Metafont, etc.) using a state-of-the-art source format, DocBook/XML. Various output formats can be generated from the source file. Anyone can write a converter for any desired output format. Because the source file is XML, the easiest way to do this might be to use XSLT.
