There's just one problem with this: it violates the DTD.  The DTD
provided with ECMA-335 specifies:

	<!ATTLIST see
	  langword CDATA #IMPLIED
	  qualify CDATA #IMPLIED

Consequently, any XML attempting to provide a value for <see/> will fail

Can you elaborate on this?  The monodoc tar.gz file should have a
configure script and (after configure is run) Makefiles which should
properly build everything.  Even better, the monodoc/tools directory has
unit tests; run "make check" from the monodoc/tools directory.
