​You might try downloading the PDF or PS versions of the V7 documents from
amazon.   It seems like a lot less work work and will be a lot easier to
read.   Also Gnu groff runs on pretty much everything these days, so going
from the V7 troff sources yourself is not difficult; in fact its pretty
smart.   Its still the best 'pure document compiler' out there.  And it
means you can add your additions/ corrections / notes to what Dennis did
right inline.
