I know a good bit about troff, my favorite macros (-mm) and the man page macros
(-man).  If I can help you any, let me know.  Probably be a good idea to do it
off the list, right?   Oh, yeah, by troff, I mean the GNU version, groff.  I've
used both, and groff is definitely the better one of the two.
