Hi Argiris,

I think this is a good start for a page like this.  Besides  
incorporating some of the feedback from the other responders, you  
might want to consider not using the terms "Sema", "CodeGen", "Parse",  
etc.  These are libraries used to implement features, and are not the  
features themselves.  Using these terms makes the page only useful to  
people who understand Clang's internals (i.e., Clang developers), and  
this page really should be targeted to a much broader audience (i.e.,  
anybody who cares about C++ support in Clang).

I would use the following terms instead:

Parse  -> "parsing"
Sema -> "type checking"
CodeGen -> "code generation (compilation)"

For those who know the internals of Clang, they will be able to do the  
reverse mapping just fine.
