[erlang-bugs] Documentation broken - gotapi

The general change in the Erlang documentation that causes the gotapi
to fail is that anchors to functions now are generated as
<a name="func_1"> in html. Earlier (in R11B) it was <a name="func/1">
(func is the function name, 1 is the arity)

The change is due to that we are now generating xhtml and in xhtml
the "/" is not allowed in the name attribute.
