It's all homegrown and very site specific I'm afraid, but the code is available in CVS if you want to take a look:

Script and program to cleanup the HTML and load it into the database:
http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgweb/cvs/cvs.php/portal/tools/docs

Page generation:
http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgweb/cvs/co.php/portal/system/docs.php?r=1.11

Submission handling (for various forms):
http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/pgweb/cvs/co.php/portal/system/handleform.php?r=1.16

Note that the latter 2 rely heavily on the Pear template code we use.

Regards, dave.
