Manpages with sgml-tools???

For simple things, I always start from the Man-Page mini-HOWTO. Easy enough.

I would try yodl, it can go from its own (simple) markup to html, ascii, man,
latex, texinfo, sgml, ...

Description: Yet oneOther Document Language.
 Yodl is a package that implements a pre-document language and tools to
 process it.  The idea of Yodl is that you write up a document in a
 pre-language, then use the tools (eg.  yodl2html) to convert it to some
 final document language.  Current converters are for HTML, ms, man, LaTeX
 SGML and texinfo, plus a poor-man's text converter.  Main document types are
 "article", "report", "book" and "manpage".  The Yodl document language is
 designed to be easy to use and extensible.

Linux is not only free; it is, arguably, a better operating system, offering
a degree of stability and an ability to scale up that NT cannot match.
