I thought that _was_ the easy way. Well, OK. I'm an old, beat-up
UNIX hack who likes keyboarding. ;)

If you've got Word around, there's an RTF Tool kit (which I think
includes an RTF --> Man filter) listed at:

I found this through Yahoo, so you can do a more specific search at:

http://www.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/Desktop_Publishing/

I've seen other -->Man filters listed too, but can't remember where.
Hopefully, this will be a start....
