sorry, obviously my typo.  "Our seb sites" -> "Our web sites"

I think Debian uses several format.  DDP usually uses debiandoc-sgml,
but www team uses wml.

And in this case of New Maint AM HOWTO, the author, Julian Gilbey,
wrote that he uses plain text to make it easily used in emails.
So, I just respect the author's decision.

Translating the plain text into wml is not so difficult task in this case.
It is just to replace some symbols ("<" with "&lt;" and ">" with "&gt;"),
to enclose the titles (for text and sections) with the tags ("<H3>" and "</H3>"),
to enclose the text contents with the tags ("<PRE>" and "</PRE>"),
and to format some lists ("<UL>","<LI>","</LI>","</UL>" are used).

If the text is long, it is just boring task and it takes long, but not
so difficult one.
