Have you tried generating a PDF and using one of the PDF to HTML
converters? They tend to work fairly well with PDFs generated by
programs like troff, though I don't expect it'd be nearly as
clean as that generated by markdown. I use TeX myself, which has
some fairly good HTML generators these days.
