First, you need to get XSLT tool called xsltproc from

(Debian has it already, other Linux distros are likely to have it too).

Then, get example from

After unpacking, running "./" on Linux will create single-html version
of docs and multiple-page version. On other platforms, you'd need to manually
execute two commands in ./

The results don't look extremely nice, but I guess that's because there's not
CSS to help with this. I'm hoping Christopher knows how to make result
nicer ;-)

Of course, in real life we'd be using Boost.Build to generate docs, since
almost all the bits are already there.
