The content, if I get your question right, is provided by codetools, and 
comes from:
- Sourcecode
- comment in source
- fpdoc

The formatting, I am not sure, but the final output depends, on if you 
have IProTurboDsgn installed or not. Though on GTK the IPro can cause 

for IPro the content is html. Not sure if codetool does that or 
something else.
It may be that without IPro the html version is just stripped of the 
html tags. (not sure)
