We discussed this at QtCon and settled on ReStructured Text because it
results in a cleaner plaintext document (i.e. more document-like, less
markup-like) than markdown. It's also the format PIP uses, but note that
it doesn't necessarily matter: each QUIP can declare its MIME type in
the header.

Anyway, I don't think you need a web server to view the formatted RST
result. Docutils has examples on how to convert to HTML using Python:
