Javadoc tool version used to build JavaFX documentation

Is the Javadoc tool used to build JavaFX documentation not from the JDK
used to build JavaFX ?

If you view the javafx.event.Event 'Uses' webpage [1] source, you will see
the comment:

<!-- Generated by javadoc (1.8.0) on Tue Feb 10 11:39:35 PST 2015 -->

So it looks like the documentation is built using jdk1.8.0 while JavaFX
itself is built using jdk1.8.0_40 [2].

The alignment in the concerned webpage is messed up. (Description column is
all the way to the right and its width is very small).

When I built the documentation locally using jdk1.8.0_40 the webpage is
displayed properly.

Seems like there was some Javadoc bug in 1.8.0 which was resolved in some
subsequent releases.
