My 2 cents: Markdown is the best alternative by far. It's the perfect mix of portability, maintainability, and graphic quality. You can easily include images, screenshots, and code blocks containing ASCII art. You can convert it to PDF, HTML and anything else using Pandoc. You can throw it into version control. It's readable even as pure text. It's very likely going to be future-proof since it has gained huge traction now.
