Ken, I'm glad to see you got this figured out over the weekend. Like you 
note with the search function, Kepler is a nicer UI than Ptolemy - you pay 
for the added niceties though from the increased build complexity. Once 
you have Ptolemy under your belt, it's easier to find a rainy Friday to 
play with the Kepler build.
The documentation is built using javadoc with a custom doclet in order to 
generate xml files. There is a make target that should do it - I cannot 
remember what it is off the top of my head (I use an ant file for the 
build and then use that as the basis of a netbeans project). I think you 
need make doc, or possible make exe - check the makefile for details.

As far as the Jython actor is concerned, Ptolemy calls it in all the usual 
places it would call an actor (OnFire, PreFire, PostFire etc - check the 
source for a full list). Because it is jython (which is Python compiled to 
Java bytecode) it has full access to all of your java classes. Thus, it 
can basically call everything that a java actor can. See the Jython 
documentation for more info.

HSBC Bank plc may be solicited in the course of its placement efforts for 
a new issue, by investment clients of the firm for whom the Bank as a firm 
already provides other services. It may equally decide to allocate to its 
own proprietary book or with an associate of HSBC Group. This represents a 
potential conflict of interest. HSBC Bank plc has internal arrangements 
designed to ensure that the firm would give unbiased and full advice to 
the corporate finance client about the valuation and pricing of the 
offering as well as internal systems, controls and procedures to identify 
and manage conflicts of interest.
