1. Move the comment about version numbers from pcre.h.in to configure.ac 
because that's where they are now set.
2. Update all the man pages to remove the use of .br and .in because this
causes trouble for some HTML converters. Also standardised the final sections 
giving author information and revision date.
3. Update the maintain/132html man page converter to handle .nf/.fi and to barf 
at .br/.in.

14 .SH DESCRIPTION
15 .rs
16 .sp
17 This convenience function finds the number of a named substring capturing
18 parenthesis in a compiled pattern. Its arguments are:
19 .sp
20 \fIcode\fP Compiled regular expression
21 \fIname\fP Name whose number is required
22 .sp
23 The yield of the function is the number of the parenthesis if the name is
24 found, or PCRE_ERROR_NOSUBSTRING otherwise. When duplicate names are allowed
25 (PCRE_DUPNAMES is set), it is not defined which of the numbers is returned by
26 \fBpcre_get_stringnumber()\fP. You can obtain the complete list by calling
27 \fBpcre_get_stringtable_entries()\fP.
