If they are the ones you have been using for libxml2 and libxslt, there
are a couple of rough edges that need to be polished, but they seem
quite nice. Mostly, URL references are dislpayed twice (probably just
using <ulink url=""/> instead of <ulink
url=""></ulink> will solve this) and there are
references that use the "ghelp:" scheme in the author section, which is
probably incorrect for a man page.

There are also some random TROFF tags floating around (e.g. .PP tags in
the --param entry in xsltproc).

Before anybody shoots me, I _will_ file some bugzilla reports for these,
but I just thought I'd mention them here while this is a hot topic.


Everything is _not_ based on faith... take my word for it.
