Simple book formatting for the web

Hi, experts,

I want to publish my book on programming (namely, Hadoop) on the web, for all to use. What is a good publishing method? Should I use html with css? If so, should I use something like this, http://hbase.apache.org/book.html?

Thank you

I know a little Joomla, but this looks a little complex, and besides it will lock me into a specific format. If I want to put the content onto another site, and they use something else, it might be a problem.

Actually, your discussion is helpful, even though the other way around: since the main value of the book would be the text and pictures, and not the format, then I should not be looking at fancy complex tools (besides, I work in Linux), but only for the simplest possible format, like html with css.

However, I thought that there is some tool to help me with this, and it seems like there is none.

If you want to go for simplest format..Then go for any documentation generator ..
