Yes, but not from a single input file. Both Anakia and Stylebook take the
approach of 1 input -> 1 output. Not, 1 input -> N output.

For example, (I suspect) that Stefan wants to have a single XML file that
defines all of the Ant tag documentation (personally, I don't think that is
a good idea from a maintenance standpoint, but that isn't the issue here).
Then, that would be processed by [TOOL] to produce individual files that
could be linked with a framed document.

In order to do that with Anakia, it is possible, but not with the "core"
version. I am more than willing to stay up late one night and work with
someone to add this functionality. I don't think it will take more than 4-5
hours of work.
