Unliftable markup in init.5

Bug Description

Use of low-level troff hackery to set special indents or breaks can't be translated to HTML or structural markups. The page will have rendering faults in HTML, and probably also under third-party man page browsers such as Xman, Rosetta, and the KDE help browser. This patch eliminates .br, .ta, .ti, .ce, .in, and \h in favor of requests like .RS/.RE that have structural translations.
