My first suggestion would be to change the name. AdaToC makes me think of an
Ada to C translator, which I don't need.

I did a little browsing in it and the index takes too long to load (238K).
First-time loading is not a problem, but when you go back to it from a page of
source code, the browser takes 25 seconds to redisplay. (Netscape 4 on a
PowerMac). I would split the index into several parts.

The source code gets displayed in black and white. Some highlighting (maybe
keywords in bold or colors like in Emacs font lock mode) would be nice.

I would also like some navigation within the source code, e.g. going from a
procedure spec to its body and things like that. I realise it's hard to do
(overloading, etc.), but it would be useful.

I'll certainly use it next time I need to look something up.

Are you going to release the program that generates the HTML from Ada code ?
