Hi folks,

The spark for this was comments on the ML about using BROWSER=cygstart man -H to 
render pages in the browser, finding that other pages with tables work okay on 
all devices/encodings/file formats, except strftime, which is an area of 
interest to me, renders its table only on tty devices/encodings/file formats. 
Following up on the groff list, found out that other -T devices/file formats 
also fail to render that page's table, where others are okay, due to known 
conflicts and deficiencies in man/tbl/groff processing of long tables > page size.

Please let me know if you want more docs, comments, code, etc. to progress this.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis              Calgary, Alberta, Canada
