Is this e-mail okay?

Well, I am a Japanese and I guess that perhaps I might be one 
of your Asian friends, I tested new groff a bit.

It is okay if I do 'groff -Tnippon -mandoc foo.1 | less'
with two or three japanese manual pages.

It also works fine 'groff -Tps -mandoc foo.1 > foo.ps' and
'lpr foo.ps' with japanese manual pages.

Of course 'man foo' works well with english manual pages
but it does not display Japanese characters at all with
Japanese manual pages.  Perhaps this is a problem of man-db
or something else and not of groff itself.

I hope some Japanese member would comment on this point.

Thanks for your efforts.

Best Regards,			2000.6.16
