  A fair point.  Attached :)

  Hmm.  Anyone out there know about utils.sgml better than me?  I have two

1)  Does it matter that the usage line is now longer than 80 chars?

2)  What's with the CDATA section ?

<example><title>Example <command>cygpath</command> usage</title>
if [ "${1}" = "" ];
		XPATH="$(cygpath -w "${1}")";
explorer $XPATH &

  When I look at the generated manpage in info or man, the opening <![CDATA[
tag is displayed, but the closing ]]> tag has disapperared.  I think it's
probably not meant to be this way?
