So, if I don't know anything but Gnome terminal, and don't know what xterm is, if I see "xterm", I have to look it up. However, if I see "xterm(1)", I don't have to look it up?


(And how did I get to the situation in which I know what (1) means, yet I only know Gnome terminal and don't know what xterm is?)

(What about the fact that xterm(1) is also a hyperlink in the sumitted page? You could change the anchor text to "xterm(foo)" and it would still navigate to the correct man page with one click.)

unix has got much bigger problems than this
