ASCIIDOC was a somewhat arbitrary choice. The goal for this project was to be able to easily generate the book in a variety of formats. Since ASCIIDOC can parse into HTML rather easily, I was then able to generate a web version of the book, a PDF for print, and ultimately I hope to be able to generate ePub and Mobi as well. LateX is a fantastic tool as well.
