to a cartography journal until I found out they were in the
Word camp. I was, however, able to convert it to Latex. 

At one point the American Instutute of Physics took only roff
(and retypeset other manuscripts--in roff). I don't know what
their practice is q

No manuals, true. But if there had been they would have been
in some version of roff, just as all Research Unix manuals were.
