And then there's this:

    .ie n \{\
    .    ds -- \(*W-
    .    ds PI pi
    .    if (\n(.H=4u)&(1m=24u) .ds -- \(*W\h'-12u'\(*W\h'-12u'-\" diablo 10 pitch
    .    if (\n(.H=4u)&(1m=20u) .ds -- \(*W\h'-12u'\(*W\h'-8u'-\"  diablo 12 pitch
    .    ds L" ""
    .    ds R" ""
    .    ds C` `
    .    ds C' '
    'br\}
    .el\{\
    .    ds -- \|\(em\|
    .    ds PI \(*p
    .    ds L" ``
    .    ds R" ''
    'br\}

Are we *really* clear what we want to break?  This will make printouts suck.
