Found this nice little tool today which some of you may find useful.
It allows you to enter a *nix command then gives you a html version of the manpage, which in my opinion is a lot easier on the eyes than a terminal.

On your own terminal u have the man2html command. (There is no need to use a external server for that).
man2html converts a manual page as found in file (or stdin, in case no file argument, or the argument "-", is given) from man-style nroff into html, and prints the result on stdout. It does support tbl but does not know about eqn. The exit status is 0. If something goes wrong, an error page is printed on stdout.

In some Linux web browsers (such as Galeon, which I'm using now), you can type
In the URL for instance, to read the manpage for "man" and it will display it immediately. There is also some way of getting an index by using this method.
