The mandoc macros are documented in the man pages.  The systems comes
with lots of examples too. 1/2 :-)

The most important rule is that you don't start a line with a dot
unless it's markup.

You don't have to get fancy.  A man page that has no markup except a
".nf" on the first line is better then no man page at all.

You don't need to quote my .signature.  Everyone has seen it by now.
Besides, it doesn't add anything to the current thread.
