The tool is Latex plus a lot of utilities that help make the HTML
output good looking. It doesn't even extract documentation from the
source. The best tool is definitely epydoc. It produces very good
looking javadoc-like html output by default, no annoying css setup
needed. You can also produce pdfs with it which is very nice.
