After that I found a Web site called "Complete list of XXX-to-HTML
converters". It lists rman and a few other man page converters, plus
converters for FrameMaker, Word, WordPerfect, Quark, Pagemaker, Excel,
Claris, Ami, Scribe, Persuasion, PowerPoint, text, PostScript, SGML,
C, C++, Perl, TCL, Mail, News, TeX, LaTeX, DECWrite, and others.
