Summary 0001322: Bizarre HTML rendering for an -o option on ls page
Description On
https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities/ls.html [^]
beneath the list of all options, we have:
If an option that enables long format output ( [XSI] [Option Start] -g, [Option End] -l (ell), -n, and [XSI] \*(z!-o\*(z?) is given with an option that disables long format output (-C, -m, and -x), this shall not be considered an error. The last of these options specified shall determine whether long format output is written.
The following text seems wrong, as if something went wrong when the source of the standard was converted to HTML:
[XSI] \*(z!-o\*(z?
Desired Action Change
[XSI] \*(z!-o\*(z?
to
[XSI] -o
with appropriate opt-start.gif and opt-end.gif markers.
Tags No tags attached.

I have moved this to the Online Pubs project since there is no problem with the PDF here; it is an HTML translation issue.

The \*(z! and \*(z? around the -o in the troff source should have been converted to the option start ´┐╝and end markers´┐╝, like they were in the SYNOPSIS. (Alternatively the troff could perhaps be changed to add shading to -o here the same way as done for -g, but there may be a reason it is done differently.)
