Example from the web:
.* This is a comment line :userdoc. :title.Endangered Mammals :h1 res=001.The Manatee :p. The manatee has a broad flat tail and two flipper like forelegs. There are no back legs. The manatee's large upper lip is split in two and can be used like fingers to place food into the mouth. Bristly hair protrudes from its lips, and almost buried in its hide are small eyes, with which it can barely see. :euserdoc.
