I don't mind as long as Chris & co don't mind me providing the sources 
(or if he wants to).  Chris?

What I've determined so far is that translation to wiki format should be 
pretty straightforward; it's translation back to the custom markup that's 
more of a challenge, because that's used to generate chm files as well as 
other formats - so the information that isn't wiki-able needs to be 
preserved somehow - probably in HTML comments embedded in the page.  At 
the same time, it needs to be transparent for edits as well within the 
wiki.  That's the underlying challenge.

awk/Perl/C/C++ are the tools I'm most familiar with.
