Thanks. I have a number of issues with this patch, though:

- It uses UTF-8 - that is IMHO still problematic in man pages.
- The formula is written in a missunderstandable way - no wonder with
  the limitations ASCII-art  has :-P
- Some notations are off compared to the standards.
- Minor nitpitting: some end-of-line whitespace.

But I took this as an initiative, to finally update this section of the
man page.

Please recheck whether my gabbling is understandable as soon as I
committed it.
