As part of general work on the ActiveTcl and Tcl Dev Kit distributions we invented a new documentation system for Tcl packages and use it to generate the nroff, HTML, and CHM documentation delivered with these distributions.

This paper describes the formats provided by this system, the packages handling them, especially their plugin interface, our experiences with these formats, their limitations, and ideas we have had for the possible evolution of the whole system in the future.
