Heh, no wonder i scratched my head trying to figure out what the problem
might be.

I'm glad to learn nothing is broken in man.cgi(8) in this respect.

You are very welcome!

Do stay in contact and don't hesitate to tell us about your
experience with mandoc and man.cgi on your servers.  I guess sooner

mandoc side, whatever it may then turn out to be.

Yours,
  Ingo
