For some time, I've been working on a program called thwack. Thwack has the ambitious goal of being a full typesetter, but for now, it converts troff input into XML output. This is exciting because input to troff is much easier to type than XML.

Now, I've got it set up for blogging. Instead of writing a document in DocBook 5.0, I simply use troff syntax, and let thwack convert it into DocBook for me. Needless to say, I'm very happy, since it'll be easier to blog (and I will therefore do it more). It also means that I get the best of both worlds: easy input, and all the power and portability of XML tools.
