Always have to quote Knuth (1984): ''Let us change our traditional attitude to the construction of programming: Instead of imagining that our main task is to instruct a computer what to do, let us concentrate rather on explaining to human beings what we want a computer to do''
NormanWalsh has written and presented a paper on using literate programming using DocBook (Walsh, 2003). His paper, a copy of which is on-line, gives some further references. His DocBook literate programming tool (really just a collection of XSL stylesheets, which is all you need to process literate programs written in XML) is available on the DocBook open repository on SourceForge.
