syntax across languages

The idea:
Bouncing between languages, I found it annoying to have to remember, or to repeatedly relearn, the organization of each languages' documentation. So I created this combined table of contents as an experiment. I sometimes even use it.

If anyone finds this page useful, or even just interesting, please let me know. Thanks.

 If you would like a copy of the script which generates this, just ask.
 C99 draft n794 is a bit old, but was the most recent version I
  quickly found which had internal links.
 Some languages unfortunately provide urls only for specific document
  releases, but not a constant url for the "current" release.  So their
  links quickly become out of date.

 Add entries from unused tag list, and the topic synthesis doc.
 Reduce size of javascript.
 Packages/Modules/Objects resorting
 Differentiating links - priority, doc label, addenda
 (Comments in data lines)
 Talk about multilingual documentation and idioms database.
