Although not a true typesetting system, my ERBook project[1] attempts
to bridge the gap between traditional static, for-print styling (i.e.
TeX) and modern interactive, on-screen approaches (i.e. Internet)
through XHTML and CSS.

For example, see how this user manual of the Rushcheck project[2] is
transformed from its Markdown-within-eRuby source[3] into an XHTML
document[4] which comes with nice on-screen and for-print stylesheets
(click the "Printer friendly" checkbox at the top-right of the web
page, or do a "print preview" in your web browser).

More examples of documents prepared in this fashion are available
here[5]. Cheers! :-)
