For me (and others I know) to contribute, the tools must run under
non-Unix environments.  While some of the tools can <produce> HTML
for consuming the information on other platforms, I can't help you
guys write any docs if I can't run the tools themselves.

Python is platform-independent -- as should the doc tools be.

Where can I obtain an OS/2 (or 16-bit Windows) version of Jade?
