I just saw your question now.

I use a self written emacs lisp script. From this input
I produce a raw grammar
and a user friendly version
The latter exists also as txt file

For the user friendly version I apply some transformation that
introduce [ ] and { } for optional occurence and repetition. For
these transformations I also have emacs lisp functions. However,
they are not very robust: Whenever I change the grammar I have to
adopt the script for the user friendly version.

You can download all scripts from the CCSL repository:
To see what you need and how it is working look for the
grammar.html and compiler.html goals in Doc/GNUmakefile.
