Part 3. Manpages Parameter Reference

This is reference documentation for all user-configurable parameters in the DocBook XSL "manpages" stylesheet (for generating groff/nroff output). Note that the manpages stylesheet is a customization layer of the DocBook XSL HTML stylesheet. Therefore, you can also use a number of HTML stylesheet parameters to control manpages output (in addition to the manpages-specific parameters listed in this section).
