+.TH PNGTOICO 1 "1 January 2002" "pngtoico 1.0"
+.SH NAME
+.B pngtoico
+\- convert png images to M$ ico format
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+.B pngtoico
+.I files.png...
+>
+.I output.ico
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+.B pngtoico
+converts a set of palettized (indexed) Portable Network Graphics (PNG)
+files to a single Micro$oft icon (ICO) file.
+.PP
+Each input PNG image should be no larger than 255x255 pixels, and use
+no more than 256 colours. Fully transparent pixels are allowed;
+partially transparent pixels (alpha blending) are not.
+.SH NOTES
+Although the ICO format is getting used on the web as a "favourites
+icon" format, it is actually very ill-suited for that purpose. Using
+a <LINK> tag, PNG images can usually be specified instead. The use of
+PNG images is recommended.
+.SH BUGS
+The ICO format is space-consuming and full of limitations.
