I've recently starting using the Eclipse PDT for editing and creating
PHP projects, and find that use of full out IDEs like this makes it
not only much easier to add inline documentation, but it gives you a
valid reason to do so as well. When looking at code, having the
ability to simply put the cursor over a function call and see that
documentation pop up in a biggish tooltip is extremely handy and kind
of makes you want to document your own functions correctly.

is this feature available in Zend Studio? I would imagine so, but I'm not
