Which would you recommend? I'm leaning towards xmltoman. Although it
depends on some perl packages they were all already installed when I
installed it; I guess anything with dh already has a lot of perl stuff
installed. xmltoman makes for a much simpler command than xsltproc. So
does xmlto but it has a lot of dependencies that I don't normally have
installed otherwise.
