Hi Ingo,

firts of all, many thanks for the continuous improvements of mandoc.

I am in the process of converting the rtptools' html manpages
to be generated from the actual manpages with mandoc -Thtml.

./configure && make clean html

Mostly, mandoc -Thtml -O style,man works very well.
However, there are a few nits.

1. The w3c validator finds what it considers fatal errors in the output:
The problem seems to be that the generated html manpage contains,
as a long html comment, the obligate license statement (itself a comment
in the mdoc source) which is long enough to push the <meta charset="utf-8"/>
_after_ the first 1024 bytes, which the validator considers a problem.

2. I can link to http://biblio.stare.cz/rtptools/rtpdump.1.html#F
- would it be an improvement if mandoc -Thtml created such links
in the SYNOPIS, or would it be too much clutter in the one line?

3. The AUTHORS get rendered fine; could the .An John Doe Mt ...
be rendered in the -Thtml output as a "mailto:", or is it
a special case not worth the complication?
