Hi,

From glMultMatrixd(3):

    .P
    Where '$times$' denotes matrix multiplication,

This becomes the following HTML:

    <div class="Pp"></div>
    Where '
    <math class="eqn">
      <mrow><mo>&#215;</mo></mrow>
    </math>
    ' denotes matrix multiplication,

The newlines before and after the math element result in extra spaces
between the ' and the multiplication symbol.

Removing HTML_NLAROUND helps, but still results in a space after
the first ' that I haven't figured out:

Fixing this might get ugly because the inline eqn(7) handling in
roff.c is a hack, because you don't want

  preceding text
  .EQ
  a = b
  .EN
  following text

to render as

  preceding texta = bfollowing text

and because handling of source code spacing in -Thtml is tricky.

The impact of the issue is relatively small, just some bogus
horizontal spacing.

So i have added it to the TODO list.

Similarly for opprime, which is potentially hard to implement
and does not seem very pressing.

But thanks for reporting!
  Ingo
