HTML?? Come on. It's already obsolete and it's shortcomings are
It's gotta be XML. Docbook already includes a subset for manpages,
or we can invent another if we don't like that. Solaris has shipped
its manpages in SGML for a long time.
Then again, this comes from the guy who lifted his a**e and left
when JW started dissing Emacs in his talk, so take with the appropriate
amount of NaCl.
A true pessimist won't be discouraged by a little success.
