Carsten mentioned man pages appearing with ``ugly'' doubled single
quotes, as if it were ugly TeX input.  ;-)  I think some of that might
be down to the man page authors rather than groff's rendering of
correctly written man pages.

    $ zgrep '``' /usr/share/man/man1/find.1.gz
    exist, it is truncated.  The file names ``/dev/stdout'' and
    ``/dev/stderr'' are handled specially; they refer to the standard

Some other occurrences.

/usr/share/man/man1/egrep.1.gz:.                ds lq ``
/usr/share/man/man1/elfedit.1.gz:.    ds L" ``
/usr/share/man/man1/fc.1posix.gz:In the KornShell, the alias \fBr\fP (``re-do") 
is preset to \fIfc\fP
/usr/share/man/man1/fc.1posix.gz:\fIfc\fP (``fix command"), but it does not 
meet the Utility

Cheers, Ralph.
