This is what Paul and myself call standalone Doxygen documentation

IOW, it's native Doxygen HTML output.

Wow! If I have known this presentation, it would have saved
me a lot of typing. Awesome!

The very first question that came to my mind, what is wrong with C++?
Why documentations in scripting world can be clean, friendly,
usable and pretty?

Looking at slides 30-37, I'm wondering...why Boost documentation
looks and feels more like a scientific paper than a handbook.
The handbooks are for mortals. The scientific paper are not.
The Boost is developed by immortals, so let them use scientific paper.
The Boost is for use mostly by mortals who need handbook, but not
scientific paper, about Boost.

If Boost documentation (and website) aims the slides 30-37, it will be a
rockstar documentation.

Is it possible at all?
