 [and Fx]
 A simple-minded fix is to add a space after the string "NetBSD"
 (et al.) in doc2html, this works for .Nx 1.6; however, it makes an
 extra space in the cases where .Nx is used at the end of a sentence
 or before a comma, like ".Nx ." or ".Nx ,", which are both perfectly
 fine for ASCII and PostScript output.
 We could commit it as a workaround, since we probably have more
 uses with a version number than without, but a real fix would of
 course be better.
