Please not.

Use a "high level" language for it, like SGML or XML Docbook DTD or
texinfo (or latex). From that source you can generate plaintext, html,
pdf, ps with some simple commands (a Makefile).
From plain text input you cant do that in an easy way.

Yes, I know that this is more work in the first place, but I think for
the long-term its better to do this.

I just added a task for that on the savannah project page. Feel free to
add additional information there.
Um well, savannah added 3 of them, i deleted two. Dont know why :)

For everyone else here:
Yes, you can join muddleftpd team even if you are no Coder. You see we
need people doing the documenation stuff. :)
