The "source code" for the documentation is embedded as comments in the
program source code, in a doxygen-like way.
Trolltech has not, to my knowledge, released the tool they use to
generate the HTML from the comments. I think their plan for Qt4 was to
convert to using doxygen since that's a more robust tool than their
internal stuff anyway. I'm not sure if that ever happened though.
Captain Logic is not steering this tugboat.
