[Message part 3 (text/plain, inline)]
I wrote it as part of my NM application. I used the '-mdoc' groff
package (documented in groff_mdoc(7)) because it has IMHO a much better
design than the other commonly used groff package, that is, 'man'
(documented in groff_man(7) and in the Info pages for groff).

You may want to complete the SEE ALSO section if you know about programs
that I did not mention there. Just remember this quote from
groff_mdoc(7) if you choose to do so:

    It is recommended that the cross references are sorted
    on the section number, then alphabetically on the
    names within a section, and placed in that order and
    comma separated.  Example:

    ls(1), ps(1), group(5), passwd(5)

Also, the explanation for the -i option should perhaps mention OpenType
fonts in addition to TrueType fonts (I don't know: 'ttx -h' only talks
about TrueType for this option and I don't have any OpenType font at
hand to test [and I'm not sure I would know where the programs would be
in the resulting TTX files if I had one]).

The contents of this manual page is based on
/usr/share/doc/fonttools/documentation.html, the output of 'ttx -h', and
a quick glance at the source code because the -m option is missing its
argument in the output of 'ttx -h'.
