Anyone know how to extract content from QuarkXPress?

The book has been sent off to the printers! Apress has told me that I should be getting my author copies sometime next week, and that the books should hit the bookstores some weeks after that. In the meantime, you can pre-order the book from a number of sources:

In the meantime, I'm working hard on repurposing my book into HTML and XML (probably DocBook) so that the book is in a more web-friendly format.   Apress and I are making the book available under a By-NC-SA-2.5 Creative Commons license — meaning that you'll be able to circulate copies of the book for non-commercial reuse.  The problem is that my book went from being in Microsoft Word (for which I have some experience extracting content) to QuarkXPress during the copy-editing/proof-reading stages.

I might be able to figure out how to convert my book to DocBook, but I'm afraid that will probably take a while to do since I'm completely new to QuarkXPress (and things like the avenue.quark XTension). Can anyone out there help me to convert my book? I'm certainly willing to pay someone to do the task.
