       groff_www - groff macros for authoring web pages

       groff -mwww [ options ] file ...

       This  manual  page describes the GNU -mwww macro package, which is part of the groff docu-
       ment formatting system.	The manual page is very a basic guide, and the html device driver
       (grohtml)  has  been  completely rewritten but still remains as in an alpha state.  It has
       been included into the distribution so that a lot of people have  a  chance  to	test  it.
       Note  that  this macro file will be automatically called (via the troffrc file) if you use

       To see the hyperlinks in action, please format this man page with the grohtml device.

       Here is a summary of the functions found in this macro set.

       Output of the pic, eqn, refer, and tbl preprocessors is acceptable as input.

       .JOBNAME filename
	      Split output into multiple HTML files.  A file is split whenever a .SH or .NH 1  is
	      encountered.   Its  argument  is	the file stem name for future output files.  This
	      option is equivalent to grohtml's -j option.

       .HX n  Specify the cut off depth when generating links from section headings.   For  exam-
	      ple, a parameter of 2 would cause grohtml to generate a list of links for .NH 1 and
	      .NH 2 but not for .NH 3.	Whereas

		     .HX 0

	      will tell grohtml that no heading links should be created at all.   Another  method
	      for  turning  automatic headings off is by issuing the the command line switch -P-l
	      to groff.

       .BCL foreground background active not-visited visited
	      This macro takes five parameters: foreground, background,  active  hypertext  link,
	      hypertext link not yet visited, and visited hypertext link colour.

       .BGIMG imagefile
	      the only parameter to this macro is the background image file.

       .URL url [description] [after]
	      generates  a  URL using either one, two or three arguments.  The first parameter is
	      the actual URL, the second is the name of the link, and the third is optional stuff
	      to be printed immediately afterwards.  If description and after are absent then the
	      url becomes the anchor text.  Hyphenation is disabled  while  printing  the  actual
	      URL;  explicit  breakpoints  should be inserted with the \: escape.  Here is how to
	      encode foo <http://foo.org/>:

		     .URL http://\:foo.\:org/ foo :

	      If this is processed by a device other than -Thtml it appears as:

		     foo <http://foo.org>:

	      The URL macro can be of any type; for example we can reference Eric Raymond's pic
	      guide <pic.html> by:

		     .URL pic.html "Eric Raymond's pic guide"

       .MTO address [description] [after]
	      Generate	an  email  html  reference.  The first argument is mandatory as the email
	      address.	The optional second argument is the text you see in your  browser  If  an
	      empty  argument  is  given, address is used instead.  An optional third argument is
	      stuff printed immediately afterwards.  Hyphenation is disabled while  printing  the
	      actual  email  address.	For  example, Joe User <joe@user.org> was achieved by the
	      following macro:

		     .MTO joe@user.org "Joe User"

	      Note that all the URLs actually are treated as consuming no textual space in groff.
	      This  could  be  considered  as a bug since it causes some problems.  To circumvent
	      this, www.tmac inserts a zero-width character which expands  to  a  harmless  space
	      (only if run with -Thtml).

       .FTP url [description] [after]
	      indicates that data can be obtained via ftp.  The first argument is the url and the
	      second is the browser text.  A third argument, similar  to  the  macros  above,  is
	      intended for stuff printed immediately afterwards.  The second and the third param-
	      eter are optional.  Hyphenation is disabled while printing the actual URL.   As  an
	      example,	here  the location of the GNU ftp server <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/>.	The macro
	      example above was specified by:

		     .FTP ftp://\:ftp.gnu.org/ "GNU ftp server" .

       .TAG name
	      Generates an html name tag from its argument.  This can then  be	referenced  using
	      the  URL	<0> macro.  As you can see, you must precede the tag name with # since it
	      is a local reference.  This link was achieved via placing a TAG in the URL descrip-
	      tion above; the source looks like this:

		     .B URL
		     .TAG URL
		     a URL using either two or three arguments.

       .IMG [-R|-L|-C] filename [width] [height]
	      Include  a  picture  into the document.  The first argument is the horizontal loca-
	      tion: right, left, or center (-R, -L, or -C).  Alignment	is  centered  by  default
	      (-C).   The  second  argument is the filename.  The optional third and fourth argu-
	      ments are the width and height.  If the width is absent it defaults to 1 inch.   If
	      the height is absent it defaults to the width.  This maps onto an html img tag.  If
	      you are including a png image then it is advisable to use the PIMG macro.

       .PIMG [-R|-L|-C] filename [width [height]]
	      Include an image in PNG format.  This macro takes exactly the  same  parameters  as
	      the  IMG	macro;	it  has the advantage of working with postscript and html devices
	      also since it can automatically convert the image into the EPS  format,  using  the
	      following  programs  of the netpbm package: pngtopnm, pnmcrop, and pnmtops.  If the
	      document isn't processed with -Thtml it is necessary to use the -U option of groff.

       .MPIMG [-R|-L] [-G gap] filename [width [height]]
	      Place a PNG image on the margin and wrap text around it.	The first parameters  are
	      optional.   The  alignment: left or right (-L or -R) specifies the margin where the
	      picture is placed at.  The default alignment is left (-L).  Optionally, -G gap  can
	      be  used	to  arrange  a gap between the picture and the text that wraps around it.
	      The default gap width is zero.
	      The first non-optional argument is the filename.	The optional following	arguments
	      are  the	width  and height.  If the width is absent it defaults to 1 inch.  If the
	      height is absent it defaults to the width.  Example:

		     .MPIMG -L -G 2c foo.png 3c 1.5c

	      The height and width may also be given as percentages. The PostScript device calcu-
	      lates the width from the .l register and the height from the .p register. For exam-

		     .MPIMG -L -G 2c foo.png 15%

       .HnS n Begin heading.  The numeric heading level n is specified by  the	first  parameter.
	      Use this macro if your headings contain URL, FTP or MTO macros.  Example:

		     .HnS 1
		     GNU Troff
		     .URL http://groff.ffii.org (Groff)
		     -- a
		     .URL http://www.gnu.org/ GNU
		     Hosted by
		     .URL http://ffii.org/ FFII .

	      In  this	case  you might wish to disable automatic links to headings.  This can be
	      done via -P-l from the command line.

       .HnE   End heading.

       .LK    Force grohtml to place the automatically generated links at this position.  If this
	      manual page has been processed with -Thtml those links can be seen right here.

       .HR    Generate a full-width horizontal rule for -Thtml.  No effect for all other devices.

       .NHR   Suppress generation of the top and bottom rules which grohtml emits by default.

       .HTL   Generate	an HTML title only.  This differs from the TL macro of the ms macro pack-
	      age which generates both an HTML title and an <H1> heading.  Use it to  provide  an
	      HTML  title as search engine fodder but a graphic title in the document.	The macro
	      terminates when a space or break is seen (.sp, .br).

       .HEAD  Add arbitrary HTML data to the <head> block.  Ignored if not processed with -Thtml.

		     .HEAD "<link \
		       rel=""icon"" \
		       type=""image/png"" \

       .HTML  All  text  after	this  macro is treated as raw html.  If the document is processed
	      without -Thtml then the macro is ignored.  Internally, this  macro  is  used  as	a
	      building block for other higher-level macros.

	      For example, the BGIMG macro is defined as

		     .de BGIMG
		     .	 HTML <body background=\$1>

       .DC l text [color]
	      Produce  a  drop	capital.   The	first  parameter  is the letter to be dropped and
	      enlarged, the second parameter text is the ajoining text	whose  height  the  first
	      letter should not exceed.  The optional third parameter is the color of the dropped
	      letter.  It defaults to black.

       .CDS   Start displaying a code section in constant width font.

       .CDE   End code display

       By default grohtml generates links to all section headings and places these at the top  of
       the html document. (See LINKS <0> for details of how to switch this off or alter the posi-
