    pic(1) (Bugs): Make style fixes.
    * Stop reporting the list of invalid input code points here; it was
      wrong for EBCDIC users anyway.  Point to the canonical copies in our
      Texinfo manual and groff_char(7) instead.
    * Refer to Tenth Edition Research Unix more normatively.
    * Drop PostScript trademark disclaimer.  It was using the \*R string,
      which we (now) discourage in man pages.  Also, we don't have similar
      disclaimers in our other man pages.
