Update of bug #42473 (project groff):

                  Status:               Need Info => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #4:

Now we have a 1981 version of the Nroff/Troff User's Manual as further
attestation that the Times bold square was not filled.

The Unix Historical Society (TUHS) helpfully has a copy available.


It's worth noting that Ossanna's text was updated, possibly by Kernighan, even
though the document date was left the same (11 October '76).  Compared to the
other version I attached, which was _published_ later but documented an
_earlier_ version of the Unix system, we can see that Wang Laboratories'
acquisition of Graphic Systems's phototypesetting business was recognized.

See attachments, or the link above.  Closing as invalid.

(file #53280, file #53281)
