  I agree with your assessment of the various markup language options.

I have several thesis in progress where I need to include: images (png, jpeg) with captions, and short quotations in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and Ethiopian (UTF-8) alphabets. Also, the structure of the documents is book, chapter, subsection, and footnotes.

Is mdoc/mandoc suitable for this use case? Finding a format other than HTML that let's me easily mix in short snippets of foreign languages while also giving nice printed output has been a long journey.
