Also I would like to change our previous usage of doxygen tags like @brief, @return to the more easy accessible '\' on mu keyboard, i.e., \brief, \return. Also, the '\' usage is more latex like. And I like them.

Anyway, there seems to be differen opinion on how to write doxygen comments. Please, speak up and make you thoughts heard.

As I remember it Markus found that Doxygen has problem parsing / styles dox with a newline in the middle of latex code. Solution was to use the style above. I took this more as a technical note of making doxygen work more than a style decision. Hence the mixture of different styles.

Now when you bring this up on the table and make me think of it, I think it would be better to use the style above all the time, because you never know when it is time to use Latex in you documentation. And suddenly changing from one style to another makes the svn commits unnecessarily large. In other words breaking the commandment Commit often and do it minimalistic.
