One of the advantages of nroff input is that it *is* human readable. (To me
it seems much easier to read than HTML, but that's not the issue here.)
To generate formatted output (in a variety of possible formats) the freely-
available groff program works well.
Yes, and that is what I used for many many years until I got tired of saving
to a temporary files and to use command line in endless iterations until I
got all page breaks and other formatting exactly as I wanted them.
I always wanted a tool where I could have the .nroff version and the text
version in two parallel windows, to immediately see the effect of any
changes in .nroff, hence I wrote my own. Mostly for the fun of it. But the
more I use that feature, the more I learned to like it end depend on it.
