It isn't quite that easy, as I have some custom scripts and .so files that
I use for all my documents, but I'll see if I can cut it down to size and
send you a copy.  Be warned though - they look a little (a lot??) messy.

That is the reason I didn't post the groff source files (Werner asked for
these in a separate post).  To make them useful, Id have to post a bunch of
stuff, and the user (you) would have to put everything in the right place.

Perhaps though I can put the needed macros in the source file (not sure if
that is possible, but think so), and I may be able to skip the index, which
I think is very useful (I hate having to rely on a table of contents to
find things - it takes so much reading to find a reference again!).

Skipping the index (for now at least) would mean few (perhaps no) scripts
would be required.

I'll look into the whole mess and be in touch again.
