For rendering man pages to plain text, HTML, or PDF, please
consider the BSD-licenced mandoc program (which, confusingly, is
part of a package called "mdocml"). See <http://mdocml.bsd.lv>.
The HTML and PDF output from mandoc is superior to the
corresponding output from groff, but mandoc is more fussy about errors
in the input.
