Well unfortunately, the 3b1 doesn't come with any troff macro sets. It only
came with nroff man macros and nroff mm macros. I think most people
suggested troff ms macros because it was easy to get a hold of. Any BSD
derived system comes with them and the FSF's groff also now includes
ms macros. They may be freely obtainable from uunet, I can't remember
where I saw them. On the other hand, unless you already have another AT&T
system with mmt then getting mm macros would either be expensive or illegal.
