As Nikolaus has answered: yes.  However, the main focus should be on
the technical issues, not the contents.  In other words, a raw,
automated translation from HTML to markdown in the source code is
fully sufficient.

Basically, this is not important.  I don't mind if I have to install
an additional tool for processing the API documentation in case this
is the most convenient way.  What I want is the following.

  1. Edit the API documentation (in markdown format) in a C header
     file.

  2. Call `make refdoc' to get nicely formatted HTML of the whole API
     that I can include stand-alone in the FreeType tarball.

  3. Call `make markdown' (or something similar) to create markdown
     files that I can copy to the freetype-web repository.  Within the
     freetype-web repository I then want to say `make web' to get
     nicely formatted HTML that is integrated into the FreeType
     website.

I'm not sure whether step 3 is necessary – right now, I simply copy
the HTML pages created by docmaker to the freetype-web repository...
