    doc/groff.texi: Fix error in .rfschar description.
    ...which should refer to "font f" rather than "glyph f".  Thanks to Dave
    Kemper for the report and the patch.
    Fixes <https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?58767>.
    And make some style tweaks in the neighborhood.
    * doc/groff.texi (Using Symbols): As above.  Also, recast to stop ending
      a sentence with an ellipsis, which I dislike.  Describe space among cn
      arguments as "optional", which is more idiomatic than saying that
      whitespace is "possible".
    * man/groff.7.man (.rfschar):
    * man/groff_diff.7.man (.rfschar): More closely parallelize with our
      Texinfo manual.
    * man/groff.7.man (.rfschar): And set ellipsis in roman, not italics.
      God, I hate that.  It's like the Ludovico Treatment.
    * tmac/groff_man.7.man: Add comments explaining deviation from
      non-quotation of escape sequences.
