I tried the .br command as soon as I found it in my reference, but it displays a literal '.br' in the output.

.It Cm --interactive, -i .br Cm --non-interactive, -b
paragraph describing the options

      --interactive, -i .br --non-interactive, -b
              paragraph describing the options
Although I admit, for as much experience as I have with writing manual pages, I could just be doing it stupidly...

The .Bd/.Ed and .DS/.DE pairs seem to fulfill the same purposes from what I can see in the manuals, but .Bd/.Ed appear to require a bit more manual formatting then I have the skill to complete with troff right now. Looks like I'm going to be splitting them into separate list items for now.

Thanks DrJ
