Of course Java developers want access to documentation. I am not sure
if they want frameset though.

Server side should not be even mentioned in this case.

Tree logic requires a bit of effort with table design and SQL, and is very easy
in HTML and PHP/Ruby/whatever.

Nope. I guess real need is something along the lines "provide access
to documentation
online" or something like that.

I would like to see that but not going to happen. Browsers will
support HTML4 for
decades to come.
