      Description

      The generated AllNames.html doesn't contain any fields or methods if any of them
      begin with _ or $ characters - it can only cope with identifiers that
      begin with a-zA-Z, but _ and $ are also valid, as defined in the
      language spec. Here's a simple test case, _bug.java:

      public class _bug {}

      Run "javadoc _bug.java" and look at the AllNames.html file; it won't
      list any identifiers. This is on Solaris, JDK 1.1.1 (and 1.1.2), but
      as it's the shared code it's applicable to all platforms.
