As an alternative to the "email link" I mentioned earlier (which I
still think is the better option), the is also LUFDOC.  You generate
you documentation HTML with fpdoc. Run the LUFDOC parser (which is
very quick) over the HTML which then modifies the HTML to include the
LUFDOC comments. The fpdoc HTML can be re-generated at any time
because the LUFDOC user comments are stored separately to the original
fpdoc HTML - the parser merges to two.  The CGI web app simply allows
a mechanism to edit the user comments section, but a standard IDE
plug-in or GUI app could also be written to do this job.

  LUFDOC = Live User Fed Documentation.

It's create by the Powtils (CGI framework) author.
