This is automatically generated email about markup problems in a man
page for which you appear to be responsible.  If you are not the right
person or list, please tell me so I can correct my database.

See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/bugs.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated.  Feel free to email me with any
questions.  Note: These patches do not change the modification date of
any manual page.  You may wish to do that by hand.

I apologize if this message seems spammy or impersonal. The volume of
markup bugs I am tracking is over five hundred - there is no real
alternative to generating bugmail from a database and template.

Problems with terminfo.5:

Use of low-level troff hackery to set special indents or breaks can't
be translated. The page will have rendering faults in HTML, and
probably also under third-party man page browsers such as Xman,
Rosetta, and the KDE help browser.  This patch eliminates .br, .ta, .ti,
.ce, .in, and \h in favor of requests like .RS/.RE that have
structural translations.

".fi" request was omitted or typoed as ".if".
