Markdown documents into UNIX manual pages (both Roff and HTML).

## Version 2.0.2 (2013-09-08)

Patch:

  * GH-14: escape single quotes at beginning of lines

    See the "CONTROL CHARACTERS" section in the groff(7) manual for
details.

    Thanks to Nick Fagerlund for reporting this bug.

  * inhibit periods at line beginnings with \& escape

  * escape text line backslashes as "\e" per groff(7)

  * better documentation for escaping in normal_text()

  * it's better to escape backslashes as \[rs] than \e

    See "Single-Character Escapes" section in groff(7).

Other:

  * switch from double-quoted strings to single quotes
