[Numpy-discussion] HTML/SGML docs

 I am looking at suggestions. I have already looked at another NumPy doc that 
looks like Python online docs.
  What I really would like to do is have:
  -A way of retrieving from a stable web page the TOC of documentation that I'd 
then put in a custom gnome-tree-like widget and when the user clicks on one item 
it'd open a link to online corresponding page.
  -An entry widget that'd have a search item that look in index of docs (online) 
and return all possible choices then when user chooses one show the 
corresponding page.
  -A bookmarking facility so that users can go back quickly to places they have 
  -The choice to download the whole .tar.gz thing to browse off-line.
  All of the above is easy to implement, and I have already started doing so 
with GMatH (http://gmath.sourceforge.net), provided there is a known stable 
place where to look for these docs.
  I already have a place to look for, but I forgot the address.
  All I need is some nifty .py thing that'd fetch the TOC, and index (from web 
site) and search through that index. I am not very good with urllib or httpblib, 
so any help is welcome.
