Yes please do put it into the build and then I shall discard the html. I
assume this is the new best-practice. I think this will be much better.
Please let me know if there is anything I need to do to make this process
work? I have some time at the moment to really knuckle down and sort this

I didn't see anything on the main site that was out-of-date. It seems to me
that the documentation being part of the build is an exciting improvement
that most maintainers would want to adopt. It might be worthwhile just to
put up a small page about this process. It might save time answering daft
questions from people like me.

Thanks for helping.
