   Agreed.  The text could be split onto two lines, the second
   indented from the first.

Since there is already a title displayed in a satisfactory way, I
would suggest simply cutting off the image text.

   In 25 years, I have never heard anyone in casual conversation
   refer to it as "ditroff".  "T-roff" is a universal pronunciation,
   and those who are conversant understand that it is

I prefer GNU Roff.  My illustration of ditroff, troff, etc., was
to demonstrate that the GNU edition of roff is distinct, with not
just device independence, but also license independence (i.e.
GNU), and diverse formats (such as html, etc.).
