What is it?
AsciiDoc is an uncomplicated text document format for writing articles,
short documents, books and UNIX man pages.

AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML, XHTML (with CSS2) and DocBook
(articles, books and refentry documents) using the asciidoc(1) command.

AsciiDoc is configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file syntax
and the backend output markups (which can be almost any type of
SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended by user.

Python 2.3 or higher.
