I've done some work along these lines.  I wrote a C program to
translate notebook files to MIF, turning each cell into a paragraph
with the cell's style becoming the paragraph tag.  I started to
write a Mathematica function to convert Mathematica expressions to
MIF equations, but never finished it before I got busy with
other stuff.  It wasn't too hard, since the structures of the two
are very similar.  I got it to the proof-of-concept stage, but there
are just so many built-in functions in Mathematica that I didn't
want to put in the time to make it "production quality."

Is there much usage of FrameMaker by the Mathematica community?
If there is I will resume work on this one of these days.
