groff (nroff and -Tpdf) and mandoc -Tutf8 agree that this means the
third line is blank:
-- >8 --

-- >8 --

However, mandoc -Thtml (current HEAD, Debian 1.14.5-1 matches) generates:
-- >8 --
<table class="tbl">
-- >8 --

Which browsers universally (lynx, Firefox) render as 0-sized,
which yields, effectively, a three-row table.

Adding a \& yields a <tr><td></td></td> (with a <b></b> in this case),
which is better at 1+1px padding from the td,
but also isn't an empty line, and lynx renders it identically.

Having a \ \& does work, I guess, but it injects a space and is a pretty
stinky work-around.
