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.
