If static HTML is acceptable, AND you have a mcs source checkout running
around, you can use `mdoc' to generate static HTML pages, e.g.

	cd mcs/class/corlib
	mdoc export-html -o ~/html Documentation/en

Be warned, it's not the fastest process around, but it will work
(eventually; my attempt at exporting full mscorlib.dll docs has already
taken several minutes and isn't finished).  Repeat for each assembly you
care about.

Note: you do NOT need to have your mcs source checkout *built*, you just
need to have `mdoc' available, which is included in the 2.0.1
Mono.framework download...
