Download the latest version and try it yourself! "For outside exchange it is kinda hard, because you just can't impose a new format on a doc/PDF world. But for internal storage I think txt2tags can be a good choice for documents with no complicated structures. In fact, being simple it forces you to write in a simple way, using basic forms as lists and tables. For technical documentation, there is no need to abuse of formatting capabilities, so txt2tags can handle the job."
