No I don't think it would be a good ide to rewrite this in HTML. There 
might be other options than latex, but I don't see that HTML would be an 
option. This due to the mathematical formulas in the document.

There are tools available to produce html from latex which can be 
integrated in the makefiles which of course would be nice.

We publish the source for the draft in the hope that we in collaboration with the Erlang community eventually will be able to produce an official Erlang Language Specification.
