Something I didn't know about our fellow correspondent Doug

Groff would be terribly less useful if it didn't adhere to this
standard. I've always thought of this in terms of groff being a
filter, but I can't remember where I got the "filter" terminology

And can anyone tell me why Donald Knuth did not design TeX this
way? This has always puzzled me and is the main reason I rarely
use it.

I have always felt the necessity to verify what to many seemed a
simple multiplication table.
