If there's a PostScript or PDF version of the Web, Google doesn't seem
to know about it.

A few lines of hacking get it mostly working, but there are problems
with the page traps when the document goes into two-column mode.

It has its own private implementation of the mm macros and groff gets
pretty unhappy when the trap macros start mutually calling each other.

I'm attaching a diff with my fixup hacks to date.
