Did you try that?  GnuWin23 distros have an unfortunate habit to
distribute man pages as foo.1.txt files, and I'm not sure WoMan will
grok such names.  GnuWin23 also removes all traces of overstriking and
underlining from the formatted man pages, so the result displayed by
WoMan might lack fontification.

One could use unformatted man pages instead, of course, if they are
installed...
