| Probably, running it through tbl(1) should fix this.
I haven't seen the page in question, but it might be the exact
opposite problem - certainly the mkisofs(8) man page (from
pkgsrc/sysutils/cdrtools) gets installed after being run through
tbl - but the man command looks for TS and runs tbl if found.
The TS macro has an entirely different (well, related, but still
quite different) meaning when input to tbl, from when used in the
output from tbl. What results from "man mkisofs" - which sends tbl
output back into tbl again - isn't quite unreadable, but it certainly
has unreadable sections.
Just changing the TS/TE in the installed copy I had to DS/DE made
it workable - (whether or not man/mdoc supports DS/DE - just deleting them
would probably have worked as well) - but better would be to avoid that
kind of preprocessing and just allow man to work it out.
