I'm not as up on Doxygen as I should: will it geenrate HTML directly
for you? cause that'd be *cool*.

By me, it's as or more important to extract the table semantics and get
them visible.  I don't want to bind Isaac's hands, *or* increase his

still think it would be useful.

I suspect we might hear an answer on that soon.  :-)

One might only hope.  I'm familiar with "motivated volunteers whom you
can't *control*"... :-)
