5.3 Faces

These options control the display faces that WoMan uses to format the man page.

woman-fontify
A boolean value. If non-nil then WoMan assumes that face support is available. It defaults to a non-nil value if the display supports either colors or different fonts.
woman-italic-face
Face for italic font in man pages. Default: italic, underlined, foreground red. This is overkill! troff uses just italic; nroff uses just underline. You should probably select either italic or underline as you prefer, but not both, although italic and underline work together perfectly well!
woman-bold-face
Face for bold font in man pages. Default: bold, foreground blue.
woman-unknown-face
Face for all unknown fonts in man pages. Default: foreground brown. Brown is a good compromise: it is distinguishable from the default but not enough so as to make font errors look terrible. (Files that use non-standard fonts seem to do so badly or in idiosyncratic ways!)
woman-addition-face
Face for all additions made by WoMan to man pages. Default: foreground orange.
