Look in Ant's CVS in the proposal/xdocs directory.

Basically the HTML docs are "legacy" and we will generate them from 
Ant's own source code using XDoclet to generate XML "descriptors" of 
Ant tasks that can then get transformed into HTML, or whatever format

I'd recommend you start with the XML files generated by proposal/xdocs 
and work from there.  Don't use the static HTML files as a basis of 
your generation.
