|Summary||0001334: Possible bad troff to HTML conversion in Portability Considerations section of XRAT|
In D.2.10 Command Language:
In the list of commands, we have:
sleep, tee, test, CONVERSION ERROR (.Cm) time *,1 true, wait,
The conversion error text seems erroneous. time is also not a hyperlink to time.html, unlike the other commands in the list.
Get rid of
"CONVERSION ERROR (.Cm) "
text and make time a hyperlink to the intended time utility.

In the PDF (P3771, L129440-129443) the only hyperlink is to Section 2.14. It would be nice if the utilities in that list were hyperlinks as in the on-line version.
The conversion error does not appear in the PDF. Note that time utility has a footnote in both the HTML and the PDF, but there is an extra space between "time" and "*" in the HTML that isn't in the PDF. I would guess that there is a bug in the .Cm macro processing when producing the HTML.

It looks like the HTML translation tool doesn't correctly handle a footnote marker in a macro argument. The source here has:
.Cm time *,\*FI looked for other places where "\*F" appears on a line beginning with "." and found there is only one other such place, and it also has a translation problem. It's in XRAT Section E Subprofiling Considerations under POSIX_SYMBOLIC_LINKS, where the troff source:
.Fn lchown ,\*Fis rendered in the HTML version as:
|This conversion error and two other conversion errors in XRAT have been corrected.|
The lchown conversion has also been fixed.
