Hello Mike,
This is a good news. Proj4 is being used in many projects. Therefore updated
and current documentation is very much welcomed.
For the formats you wish to produce, I suggest you use LaTeX. You can get
dvi, pdf, ps outputs for free! Also, there are many converters to html and I
think xml (never used any).

Do you have access to the original documentation sources (not the pdf)?

Best regards,

  With Frank Warmerdam's kind permission, and after some email exchanges
with Gerald Evenden, I have volunteered to take over the documentation for
Proj4. Sadly, this does not mean there will be a new manual tomorrow, or
even the next day. It will take me some time to gather and integrate all the
current information. With a little luck, I hope to have something in place
by the fall. The new documentation sources will be placed in the proj4 cvs,
and will therefore be accessible to everyone. The intent is to produce pdf
output, probably html, and possibly xml. The exact toolset that will be used
is not definite yet. I am not planning any translations from English at this
point. You will be welcome and even encouraged to volunteer to translate
once the originals are in CVS.

  I welcome all your suggestions, comments, etc. Please email me at the
address below or email this list, clearly indicating in the subject line
that your message is for the proj4 documentation. Please don't mix
documentation comments with other types of comments, I may miss them in that

  Thanks very much,
