    doc/webpage.ms: Fix style problems.
    Change of point size is too large, +-2 is usual.
    Change a HYPHEN-MINUS (code 0x55, 2D) to a minus (\-), if in front of a
    name for an option.
    Put a '\&' directly after a period (.), that is not an end of sentence.
    Use a straight quote (apostrophe, apostrophe quote, quotesingle, \[aq])
    in examples (using a constant width font, for example Courier (C, CR).
    See for example "www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs/quotes.html".
    Use a hyphen to combine two words used as an attributive, see for example
    "32-bit" in man-pages(7).
    Use the name of units in text, not the symbol, except in tables,
    calculations, and equations.
    Use the unit 'p' (roff), not 'pt' (TeX).
    Set the name of a man page in bold type, but the section in roman.
    Make '~' (tilde) bigger (+2) or use "\[ti]", if it means "approximate",
    as the character is too small in the output of troff.
    Change <X>[\]-<Y> to <X>\[en]Y> if it is a range.
    Add a comma after "e.g." and "i.e.", or use English words
    Add the missing 'l' (landscape) in 'a4'.
    [I have a few tweaks I'd like to make to some of the above, but I'll
    place those in a separate commit. --GBR]
