"Great minds think alike" ;) I was thinking about the same thing since some
time. We should definetley put it on some to-do list (pity there's no
"wishlist" priority in GNATS!), I think it would be a nice feature.

Perhaps I'll come up with something in Python, when I have some time. I'd
really like to have all the HTML docs indexed some way (just like
Microsoft's CHM files do), that would make them easier to browse.
