Oops.  That error was introduced in 2012 when man-ext was first
mentioned.  Not sure how that happened and why it was never spotted;
the file an-ext.tmac was always clear about the authorship.
Sorry about it.

Fixed by the commit below, which will be in the next release.

Given that misattributions are awkward, i also regenerated
right away.  The following will automatically update tomorrow:

Weird.  Apparently, the CSS file was outdated or incorrectly linked,
not sure which.  The problem went away after regenerating the pages,
probably because they now link the CSS correctly.

Thanks for mentioning the CSS problem, too.
