Description
For any package, Javadoc should copy any "doc-files" directory that 
exists in the source tree to the destination directory.  It does this
if you supply a package name in the Javadoc command, but fails
to do this if you supply source files (such as *.java).  The directory
should be copied in both cases -- omitting it causes links to be broken.

EVALUATION The following source files were changed to fix this bug: PackageWriter.copyDocFiles: - Method moved to parent class. HtmlStandardWriter: - Inserted protected method copyDocFiles (taken from child class PackageWriter) so that it would be used by child class PackageWriter AND child class ClassWriter. ClassWriter.generate(): - Called method copyDocFiles so that links won't be broken when documenting supplied source files. jamie.ho@Eng 2001-01-16
