xzip.6: Unnecessary escape before "<" in the manual

xzip (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Software: xzip
Version: 1:1.8.2-3
File: zxip.6
Patch: Yes

  Warnings from "GROFF_ENCODING=utf8 groff -b -ww -mandoc -z ..."

<groff: xzip.6>:73: warning: escape character ignored before `<'
<groff: xzip.6>:166: warning: escape character ignored before `<'
<groff: xzip.6>:170: warning: escape character ignored before `<'
<groff: xzip.6>:212: warning: escape character ignored before `<'

  Space at end of line removed

  Some formatting changes

  Output from "nroff" should (usually) have only the left margin
adjusted (".ad l"). Otherwise the space between words can be too long.

  Output for a manual should (usually) have the right margin ragged
(".ad l"), as it is not (usually) intended for a book or other
professional printing medium.

  Each sentence should begin in a new line.

a) The space between sentences is different between formatters.

b) Changes in one line do then not affect others, and do therefore not
appear as changed in the output of "diff".

  Sometimes a small change in space between a roman and an italic
character is needed (use ".RI" or ".IR" macros).

  Remove spaces at end of lines.

  Protect the last full stop (period) in abbreviations or ellipses
(with \&) if it is not at the end of a sentence.

  Protect the full stop (period) at the beginning of text (word) or

  Protect a single quote (', apostrophe) (with \&) at the start of the
quoted text.
