On my screen I see stuff like 1mNAME instead of seeing NAME in bold.
Strangely, if I save to an output file with man -c Tcl.n and then "more"
the file, the bold shows up!!

off underlining even when I "more" the file. Even on the commandline this
doesnt work.

I'm using an SGI xterm with the default pager
