I want to export some or all of the posts of a blog into a format that makes sense to a publisher (traditional or self-publisher(e.g.: Lulu.com)) (MS Word, RTF, PDF, epub, something else).
What tools are available to accomplish this?

A great option is the Anthologize plugin. It works with WordPress 3.0, allows you to format your book in WordPress itself, and then publish everything automatically to PDF, ePub, and other formats.
Blogbooker is a service which takes an XML export of your blog and turns it into a PDF, which could then be uploaded to a self publishing platform.
Also - check out PressBooks ... http://pressbooks.com/
I've used it for one of my ebooks and it's great ... also does Kindle and Nook file formats.
Try the new WP plugin Blog TO PDF: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/blogtopdf/
You could use Papyrus http://papyruseditor.com/en/blog2book
It fetches the blog contents using the rss feed of your blogs, and converts it into an ebook in PDF,Epub and Kindle(Mobi) formats
If you want to use an offline solution and keep track of your data and articles, you could try Wordpress2Doc.
