Thanks for the drafts. Could I ask you to review the man-pages(7)
page. There's a number of details described in that page
which should be fixed in the drafts. Also, please try rendering
your pages with "man -l <page>". This will show problems with 
the example code. See the chown(2) man page example for
the required escape sequences for "\n" and the single quote.
