If I read this correctly, the ".R" should have been a ".B" anyway.

On the "roman" vs. "registered" issue, I nevertheless think
it is better to have a "roman" for reasons of consistency
than a "registered" (despite the latter being the AT&T way,
and me thus screwing up the existing manpages).  Otherwise
I'd feel pressured to analogously implement a "copyright",
and I'd much rather have the ".C" reserved for a "computer"
font like in the HP manpage macros.
