mandoc — Projects using their own CSS code
The development of the default
file is tightly coupled with the development of the HTML output
Consequently, the elements and classes used by
do not provide a completely stable interface.
While providing a limited degree of backwards compatibilty
is attempted for a limited time when making changes to the
mandoc HTML output,
users may occasionally have to adapt their CSS code to new
and changed features in mandoc.
Also, very old CSS compatibility features may eventually get
dropped, usually after a few years.
Consequently, if using the default
and keeping it in sync with the C code is an option for you,
that entails significantly less maintenance effort
than maintaining your own CSS code.
For example, that approach has been chosen for the
Void Linux manual pages.
But some projects have good reasons to maintain their own CSS code
anyway, and for such cases, that is not discouraged.
If you use your own CSS code with
HTML output for a public website not listed here,
the mandoc authors to get listed.
The purpose isn't that any stability promises would be made,
but that we can keep track of what's out there and
better judge the impact of API changes during development.
The official online manual pages of the following projects use mandoc HTML output and their own CSS code:
