	"man gettytab" displays

     cl        str               NULL Ta screen clear sequence

        for the formatting sequence

.It "cl str" Ta Dv NULL Ta
.No "screen clear sequence"


.It "ds str" Ta So Li ^Y Sc Ta
.No "delayed suspend character"

	results in

     ds        str               `^Y' Ta delayed suspend character

	Doing "nroff -man gettytab.5 | less -s" does not show these
	formatting problems.

	BTW, this problem is also seen in 8.99.49.

	Inspect "man gettytab" output.

	Sorry, none provided here (yet).
