That's a sweet concept. I proposed that idea at one company I worked
at. After all, when does a developer most need documentation? When
they're working with the product. Our company's product manuals were
useless as PDFs.

Espresso, the web dev IDE I use, lets you install "sugars" that
provide syntax auto completion for different languages. The system
also lets you build your own using an XML based language. it would be
a great treat if you could also integrate context sensitive help.
