The @author tag is used to document the author of any element that can be documented (global variable, include, constant, function, define, class, variable, method, page). phpDocumentor will take any text between angle brackets
(< and >)and try to parse it as an email address. If successful, it will be displayed with a mailto link in the page
NEW v1.2 - @author is now inherited by child classes from a parent class, see inline [email protected]}.
