Textile Markup => Other formats


We were working on building a text editor to write articles in our
rails application. Some digging and asking around - people advised us
to use Textile Markup. I checked out the syntax of Textile and it was
neat and concise. After that we got another Q ... is it possible to
import document (other than HTML and plain text) into textile format
and conversely is it possible to export textile documents to formats
(other than HTML and Plain Text)?

P.S. Other formats means MS Word documents or Open Office...

Does anyone know about this?
Please advise...

There are any open source gems / plugins which allow
1. importing to textile from other formats
2. exporting to other formats from textile.

Any help would be appreciated
