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

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*"... :-)
