Okay I'll check out noweb.

My personal opionion as a haskell newbie is that I love literate programming. 
I can write down my train of thoughts along with the source code, then I read 
the generated document an I can find flaws in it much more easily than when 
reading the bare source. I understand that this becomes less of an issue when 
you become more experienced with haskell. Still it will always be a good way 
to promote haskel-style solutions.

I don't have any problems with LaTeX, but a less verbose solution would do 
just fine. 

My biggest problem is actually literate programming in conjunction with 
leksah. Can anybody comment on this issue? Do you guys use leskah at all?
