That is why they are converting to SGML.  From SGML you can convert to html, 
ps, pdf, rtf, latex, tex, etc.  You simply type up your document in SGML then 
use the sgml-tools to "render" or "convert" your SGML source into the new 
format.  The LDP Authors Guide gives you some hints on installing the 
required programs if you have an rpm distribution.  If you have Debian, and I 
highly recommend it, it is very *easy* to install this.  Simply type:

apt-get install sgmltools2

*Everything* you need to get up and running will be installed except for the 
LDP's custom stylesheet.  Simply follow the directions in chapter 7 section 3 
of the LDP Author Guide to get it.

Have you tried using LyX? It supports SGML (it's very new and not complete 
yet) but it's based on latex/tex and is very powerful.  You could import your 
latex documents and then simply export them as SGML.  You wouldn't even need 
to know SGML to do this! 

Some of the members of my local LUG preferred LyX to writing in a basic 
editor.  It's at http://www.lyx.org.  By the way, LyX runs on a lot of 
different platforms (even Windoze!?).
