If it is linuxdoc, please consider to use debiandoc-sgml which is
superset of linuxdoc as I understand as its maintainer.

If it is SGML with old DocBook, use dockbook tool chain.  

You can see debian-faq and several other packages building HTML and/or
PDF from SGML.  Please note converting to PDF from the tables in DocBook
SGML is not easy especially for non-English as I see the state of the
tool chain.

SGML and XML is minimal difference for DocBook case.

Please check exsisting packages :-)
