I make use of /usr/local/lib/python2.5/pydoc.py
(your path may be different, depending on OS and version)

On linux, I invoke it as a "server" as 
     pydoc -p 1234 &
(where 1234 is the non-conflicting port number of your choice)

And then point my browser to http://localhost:1234 (subsititute your port 

This will pick up your own docstrings, libraries and classes as well as the
installed python system.
