That is why I really don't want to do it any other way then a web page 
that accesses the MySQL database letting you add/modify the database 
content. Then the only chance of a mess up is if two people happen to be 
trying to add documentation for the exact same item. Not to likely that 
this will happen.

Please note that each record in the database is down to the property, 
method level. In other words you would be adding information for.

Due to the nature of how the HTML files are created it should be easy to 
determine which file to open based on the item you are looking for. At 
this point I am not that concerned with working on this since it isn't 
of much use until we have more detailed documentation available.
