(A) Search the archives.  This problem is already documented on the Erlang
    web site.  When I ran into it, I installed fop.
	http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/download.html
    I then ran into further problems, which weren't that hard to patch around,
    but which I don't remember.  I'd have to search the Erlang mailing list
    archives too.

(B) When I got fop going, the output was wrongly formatted.
    A lot of the spaces in C prototypes were missing.  And they
    were missing in all generated formats.

So my recommendation is to visit
	http://www.erlang.org/download.html
and download the HTML Documentation File and the Man Pages File
and use those.
