Well, it's not man pages, but Sun's Javadocs are a really good
example of what you're talking about. See
http://java.sun.com/products//jdk/1.3/docs/tooldocs/javadoc/standard-doclet.html

From a pure tech pubs perspective, they're far from perfect. That
said, they're well understood and relied upon by Java programmers
everywhere.
