My favorite is docbook, but not everybody has it or can get it easily
Benoit has the manual at the site in pdf for like .35 and SO for .5x
I find the PDF one MUCH easier to use

So either...
1. Stich all the pieces together into a big PDF doc
    (1 doc, 1 chapter each for overview, tutorial, manual, 
      components, making extentions, db stuff, examples, etc)
2. Find out how to get it into the currently used place (view ???)
    (1 new menu item for each of the above [component there now])

I also think we need icons at the top of the page like Win SDK help
* NEW FOR VER 0.57 (NEW autostart form, etc, blah, blah)
# VER 0.57 CHANGE (mine's .53, I can't run most of your .57 example)
@ Difference from VB (this funtion, property, method, etc, blah, blah. etc)

Again, these guys have touch on all this, just none is joined or done
