NAME
     dhtml -- HTML postprocessor for troff

SYNOPSIS
     dhtml [-t title] <	ditroff_output > html_output

DESCRIPTION
     dhtml is a	HTML postprocessor for troff(1).  It reads the ditroff output
     from STDIN	and writes HTML5 output	to STDOUT.  troff must in this case be
     called with option	-Thtml.	 Missing charaters can be added	by changing
     the files charset and CHAR	(see section FILES).  For adding fonts the
     tool needs	to be recompiled (currently the	legacy fonts R I B BI C	CW CR
     CI	CB H HI	HB S are available).

     Options:

     -t	title  Set text	for the	HTML <title> tag.

FILES
     source_dir/troff/troff.d/font/devhtml/charset
	     charset which is appended to each font description	file at	in-
	     stallation	of the tool (run

		   # make install

	     after changes of this file).

     /usr/local/share/heirloom-doctools/font/devhtml/CHAR
	     Character to HTML name mapping which is read at each run of
	     dhtml.

EXAMPLES
	   tbl manpage | troff -Thtml -mandoc \
	       | dhtml -t html_title > html_file

     Convert manpage into HTML format with title html_title and	save it	as
     html_file.

SEE ALSO
     troff(1), dpost(1)

BUGS
     For the current version no	changes	to the ditroff interface are done.
     All information for formatting the	HTML page is taken from	legacy ditroff
     commands.	As a consequence the alignment cannot be as accurate as	in the
     dpost(1) output since the character widths	of HTML	fonts must be supposed
     to	be unknown.

     At	the moment no HTML tables are generated.  tbl(1) (without options) can
     be	used for preprocessing but mayor alingment issues may result.  There
     is	no support for equations, graphics, images, and	links in this ver-
     sions.  These features are	subject	to be implemented later.
