I don't know off hand what the XFree86 doxen is written in, but if you
or anyone here has dox to convert from HTML to DocBook, this tidy patch
works really well:

It's less helpful when the dox are about APIs, because everything
becomes <literal> or <computeroutput> or <screen>, which reflects the
formatting centric usage of HTML.  But it is certainly a nice way to get
everything in W3C compliant DocBook SGML/XML as a starting point.
