I've been trying something in some industrial code I maintain that seems to
be useful:

In the C++ source file, I include comments like:

     do_adjacency_list_func(); // See docs/adjacency_list.html

I wrote a little VC++ plugin that invokes any selected text as a
command. So you select docs/adjacency_list.html, and click the plugin's
toolbar icon, and the browser starts, displaying docs/adjacency_list.html.

Now if IDE vendors would just start building that functionality into their
source editors...
