I think O'Reilly was the last commercial publisher with a troff toolchain.
Nowadays they accept HTMLBook (their own static subset of HTML5), DocBook,
ASCIIDoc (analogous to Markdown but plain-text DocBook as opposed to
plain-text HTML), Word, and in some cases InDesign or PDF.

And through this revolting graveyard of the universe the muffled,
maddening beating of drums, and thin, monotonous whine of blasphemous
flutes from inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond Time; the
detestable pounding and piping whereunto dance slowly, awkwardly, and
absurdly the gigantic tenebrous ultimate gods --the blind, voiceless,
mindless gargoyles whose soul is Nyarlathotep. (Lovecraft)
