We have been moving towards that for several years.  At least the manuals 
maintained by myself contain many formally checked entities.  It is just a 
matter of a bit more technical support in doc browsing to get a whole lot 
of links.  I have also thought about links to formal "concepts", too.

There is nothing for free on the JVM.  It is a platform where people make 
a lot of money.  There is a decent HTML free browser ("Lobo/Cobra"), but 
no reasonable PDF viewer.

His manuals are not even formally checked by Isabelle, so this is two 
steps backwards.
