Description
When a member inherits a comment, it provides a link to the class or interface it inherits from -- this link should be to the exact member in that class or interface.

For example, the itemStateChanged method appears as follows:

http://java.sun.com/products//jdk/1.2/docs/api/javax/swing/DefaultCellEditor.EditorDelegate.html#itemStateChanged(java.awt.event.ItemEvent)

----------------------------------------------------------------
itemStateChanged

public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e)

      Description copied from interface: ItemListener 
      Invoked when an item has been selected or deselected. The code written 
      for this method performs the operations that need to
      occur when an item is selected (or deselected).
------------------------------------------------------------------

The link for ItemListener currently is this:
<B>Description copied from interface: <A HREF="../../java/awt/event/ItemListener.html">ItemListener</A></B>

but should instead link directly to the inherited comment:
<B>Description copied from interface: <A HREF="../../java/awt/event/ItemListener.html#itemStateChanged(java.awt.event.ItemEvent)">ItemListener</A></B>

Notice the label "ItemListener" should *not* be lengthened to  "ItemListener.itemStateChanged", as this is unnecessary text to read.
