Check out
for a long list of filters from X to Y. (If you in Netscape now,
you can click on the above address). The tool closest to what is
desired is probably "unroff" (HTML --> Nroff).

I think I've also seen Frame --> Nroff filters on the Web, but don't
remember the address. There are a BUNCH of filters out there - but
the ones I just scanned are mostly converting to HTML. Still, the
person who wrote man2html might be able to help...

Alta Vista ( seems to have one of
the better Web search engines these days, if you want to poke around.

The only thing I don't understand is why someone would not _want_
to write in Nroff to begin with... ;)
