Bug#226345: glibc-doc: Incorrect and unsightly formatting in man pages
There seems to be a strange use of exclamation marks to emphasize text in the
glibc-doc man pages. This is not how man pages are formatted. Looking at other
man pages it seems the nroff code that should be used for these cases is .BR.
The exclamation marks are particularly unsightly. If the entries cannot be
generated from whatever source the documentation is coming from I would suggest
not doing anything at all. Though obviously formatting it correctly would be
!pthread_self! return the thread identifier for the calling thread.
