It seems to have a man: schema, e.g.

    gnome-open man:ls
    xdg-open 'man:sleep(3)'

However, still no linking and the rendering turns `alarm(2)' into `alarm

There's also

    gnome-open info:groff

Seperately, have man(1) produce HTML.

    man -H 3 sleep
    man -Hfirefox 3 sleep

Still no SEE ALSO linking but at least no extra spaces either.

Producing PDF is easy enough,

    man -Tps 3 sleep | ps2pdf - sleep.3.pdf

but the PDFs don't link either.

Online sites do provide HTML man pages with linking, e.g.

Cheers, Ralph.
