I've always just used another man page as an example.  The man page for man
itself makes a pretty good one.  So does the man page for pppconfig, IMHO.
Don't just pick a man page at random to use as a template: many are not
well done.  man pages use a pretty small subset of nroff.  You can write
them without really knowing nroff.
