There's nothing that prevent a window based tool
to generate a flat text file in the line of
the format I proposed (you just have to be imaginative
for :command: sections :). A specialized boot disk or ISO
could also do the job and write the file on
a vfat fs (USB key?) if any is available, then you could
use your favorite Windows & Internet Explorer version
to upload the resulting file.

The ultimate advantage over XML is that you could post
it to lkml or any linux list when you have a problem without getting
flames about HTML mails not allowed :) :).
