Can someone from polis@ comment this, please?  How can we set up
test pages?  And may I ask to give him an account so that he can
access the groff related HTML stuff?

No, we haven't.  But it is possible to do so if you wish.
Nevertheless, I doubt that it very useful (expect that you plan to
integrate a lot of dynamic stuff into the HTML pages).

You mean writing HTML pages with groff?  Then I suggest you contact
Gaius directly so that he knows what you need.
