Oops, sorry- incomplete post. My build line was:
groff -Thtml -mdoc NEWapcpwr.8 > NEWapcpwr.html
But the results are still unsatisfactory. The -Tascii
version looks fine, but the HTML version still has formatting
I've posted them as follows:
apcpwr.8 - original post from John <jwd at bsdwins.com>
apcpwr.8.diff - diff -u apcpwr.8 NEWapcprw.8
NEWapcpwr.8 - my patches from the previous post already applied.
NEWapcpwr.html - formatting problems still show up under the COMMANDS section.
though the section headers now behave.
Anyone else have any insight here?
