There is utility named MkMaster to do this. I do not know why these .xml are in assembly subdirectories, while there is /doc/classes directory to that purpose. Adam?

PS: I still could not see there static modifier and visibility (public/protected) and some others (as sealed,attributes...)

You have sources of MS libs? Hope you have not. Even use of MS doc is not good idea when documenting mono classes (it is their intelectual property - and good one in my eyes)

BTW: MkMater was not working in 29th snapshot. I do not test it under 0.16 yet :-(
