Define "Palm" format. I can schlepp text files in and out. Was poking
around last night and found a DocBook quick-reference which was in
address book format -- this is a built-in database format for the Palm.
I could probably accomplish same or similar, but my tools for accessing
the Palm are geared toward GNU/Linux.
Either way, this is a suggestion SI might be interested in following up
on. I'm nominating this as a feature request to them.
