as I said, I've managed to include the SWF documentation into monodoc. But 
that would be a solution which is only available to me. But my intention was 
it to find a way where SWF documentation would be shipped with monodoc 
automatically. (Maybe I did not express myself clear enough in the last 

The only way I can think of right now is adding the swf docs to the build 
process of monodoc. But I don't know if this is possible and how this will 
work with user contributions and so on since I'm not to familiar with the 
whole thing.

Btw. I'm aware of the Assembler page in the wiki, I "wrote" it yesterday. But 
could you please tell me where is the difference between mdassembler and 

Kind Regards,
