Hi Clarke,

you can also try using the macros

your troff circuit etc

which places the troff within this section into a png which is
referenced by the html text. You need to invoke groff with the -Thtml
flag of course.  Note this is not necessary for pic, tbl and eqn as
the EQ, TS, PS call HTML-IMAGE automatically. Just for reference there

.HTML-IMAGE                                   (centers the image)

(inside www.tmac) hope this helps,
