       Very outdated info pages exist.  GTK uses (from what I gather) HTML
       files that get generated from SGML files.

   What exactly is the format?  Is it Docbook?

No, it is not Docbook, it uses `linuxdoc' (no idea what that is).  To
quote the first page I found about this format:

 "Linuxdoc-SGML is a text-formatting package based on SGML (Standard
 Generalized Markup Language), which allows you to produce LaTeX,
 groff, HTML, and plain ASCII (via groff) documents from a single
 source. Texinfo support is forthcoming; due to the flexible nature of
 SGML many other target formats are possible."

 "This system is tailored for writing technical software
 documentation, an example of which are the Linux HOWTO
 documents. However, there is nothing Linux-specific about this
 package; it can be used for many other types of documentation on many
 other systems. The name is simply derived from its use for the Linux
 HOWTO documents. It should be useful for all kinds of printed and
 online documentation."
