There seems to be an error in edoc trying to parse URLs with query 
string arguments:

----------------
$ cat overview.edoc

Test Project

@doc Test.

<a href='/docs/?class=ColumnModel&member=configs'>ColumnModel 
configuration</a>
----------------

Error being generated:

3748- fatal: expected_entity_reference_semicolon
2628- fatal: error_scanning_entity_ref
overview.edoc: at line 8: error in XML parser: {fatal,
                          {error_scanning_entity_ref,
                              {file,file_name_unknown},
                              {line,51},
                              {col,88}}}.
edoc: error in doclet 'edoc_doclet': {'EXIT',error}.



Apparently it doesn't like the ampersand in the URL.  Changing the link 
to '/docs/?class=ColumnModel' works with no issues.
