troff has been there for ages, and it is not a man-page
language, it is simply a formatting-language. Those guys at Bell
Labs wrote papers and books in troff+eqn. troff makes it easy to
present man pages in a vt100 pager, as PostScript document, as
html, or whatever you want. Uriel made his presentations with
troff btw.
