Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-07-01 08:49:11 CEST
The documented options for our various commands are currently not styled in accordance with the man pages style guide. It states that literal sections should have strong emphasis, placeholders should have regular emphasis, and everything else should be unstyled.

For the HTML and PDF backend, only the placeholder formatting is broken. The man backend, however, styles the entire syntax with strong emphasis.

Bug reported here:


It seems the placeholder bit is getting fixed for 5.10 though:
