Look at <http://daly.axiom-developer.org/bookvol10.2.pdf> which is the
latest incarnation I'm testing.
The key innovation here is that I've figured out how to connect the
graphviz graph directly to the PDF files. So once I put up the next
version of the system you should be able to look at the graphviz category
graph, click on a box, and go directly to the page in the PDF. Try:
<http://daly.axiom-developer.org/bookvol10.2.pdf#nameddest=SETCAT>
or
<http://daly.axiom-developer.org/bookvol10.2.pdf#nameddest=SetCategory>
I've also figured out some more tricks to use Axiom to dynamically
generate information but I haven't had time to code them yet.
The literate documentation is getting more interesting.
