The information you have posted is very useful. The sites you have referred was good. Thanks for sharing..

The obvious problem is that they do it quite badly. As anybody who has done good documentation knows, generating even an index is not a straightforward, automatic task.

I certainly agree about the need for strong documentation. It is often the nature of a program, rather than the code itself, which can be most elusive. I have used inline comments for some time now to store previous values (e.g. css attributes or function arguments) that might be useful in the future. Do you think this is sloppy?
