[Scribus] Big Project - Question/Comments

I am currently working on a book-type project.  In the end I want to have 
three digital versions ... one in plain text, one in HTML format, and the 
third in PDF format.  I am nearing completion of the plain text version. 
I have many images to include in the project which will not be part of the 
plain text version but will be part of the HTML and PDF versions.

I have experience in HTML but I have never created anything in PDF format 
before.  I have yet to use Scribus for a project but I have a little 
experience in desktop publishing having worked with PageStream (I believe 
it was called) on the Atari some 15 to 18 years ago.  :)

I was thinking that I would create the HTML version of the project next, 
and then the PDF version using Scribus.  But it occurred to me that 
possibly an HTML version can be automagically created from Scribus.  Is 
this possible?  It seems to me that saving a project in HTML out of 
Scribus would not be too difficult.  If it's not possible now, is it in 
the works?

I'm open to any and all comments and/or suggestions concerning my project 
and how to proceed.  (It's a big project ... the plain text version being 
a little under 5 MB currently.)
