DocBook may be a little heavy weight for documentation included
in source files. The book by Normal Walsh is available
online at http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/docbook/index.html

I used it when I was working on SGML-Tools, and it had a few
things I liked, and a few I didn't. It does seem to be the
best tool available right now. 

The support for XML in Python is really good, and I'd push for
that sort of tool, if possible.
