[groff] 02/02: groff(7): Clean up miscellaneous style problems.

From: G. Branden Robinson
Subject: [groff] 02/02: groff(7): Clean up miscellaneous style problems.
Date: Thu, 2 Nov 2017 20:27:57 -0400 (EDT)

gbranden pushed a commit to branch master
in repository groff.

commit 9f8752809bf6290e3e08433816dd315f8569a0b2
Author: G. Branden Robinson <address@hidden>
Date:   Thu Nov 2 20:16:59 2017 -0400

    groff(7): Clean up miscellaneous style problems.
    * Use groff-style character escapes, e.g. for the copyright symbol.
    * Use an en-dash in copyright year and character class ranges.
    * Use \- instead of - in email addresses, URLs, and other syntax
      literals (including where a mathematical minus sign is intended), so
      cut and paste works.
    * Use two-font macro for doclifter(1) cross reference.
    * Remove stray backslash from example macro definition.
    * Remove useless trailing whitespace from input lines.
    * Style: "output-lines" -> "output lines" (noun phrase)
    * Style: "vice-versa" -> "vice versa"
    * Add Vim modeline.
