source_dir /troff/troff.d/font/devhtml/charset charset which is appended to each font description file at installation of the tool (run
# make install
after changes of this file).
/usr/local/share/heirloom-doctools/font/devhtml/CHAR Character to HTML name mapping which is read at each run of dhtml.
tbl manpage | troff -Thtml -mandoc | dhtml -t html_title > html_file
Convert manpage into HTML format with title html_title and save it as html_file.
For the current version no changes to the ditroff interface are done. All information for formatting the HTML page is taken from legacy ditroff commands. As a consequence the alignment cannot be as accurate as in the dpost(1) output since the character widths of HTML fonts must be supposed to be unknown.
At the moment no HTML tables are generated. tbl(1) (without options) can be used for preprocessing but mayor alingment issues may result. There is no support for equations, graphics, images, and links in this versions. These features are subject to be implemented later.
