Package: pandoc
Version: 2.2.1-3+b2
Severity: normal

How to reproduce:

1. Start with this nroff input file:

.TH "BBC BASIC" 5 2020-05-06 \" -*- nroff -*-


tab(|) allbox;
lb  lb
l  l.

2. Run Pandoc on it like this:

pandoc -s -o bbcbasic.html /tmp/minimal_nroff.man

3. Observe that this failed with an error message.

The error message seems to relate to the use of $.  Whiel $ is special
to TeX, it is not special to nroff, so this failure should not occur.
If the Pandoc conversion process requires nroff -> HTML to go via *TeX,
then such characters should be quoted.

Here is the error message under consideration:

$ pandoc -s  -o bbcbasic.html /tmp/minimal_nroff.man

  " 0xBE|"GET
