I have found it difficult to read a Java program from top to 
bottom because the javadoc comments proceed the function/method 
header. I want to see what the compiler reads first and then 
read the human commentary about what it means. With the way Java 
is set up, I have to jump around in the source instead of 
reading from top to bottom.

Cheers - Bill
