So now it says:

  "woman-decode-buffer: WoMan can only format
   manpages written in the an format"

Wouldn't that be clearer if the 'an' was in quotes, what with 'an'
being a word in the English language and all, and not a format many
Emacs will have heard of I guess.  I had to read the sentence a few
times to parse it correctly.
