Is there an SGML to Postscript converter so that I can print SGML man
pages from the command line?

Solaris 7 supports SGML man pages, you can simply print them with "man
-t <manpage>".

It's also possible to convert the SGML manual pages into the older
"troff" format and use the PS printing tools for this format, too ...

Assuming there are correctly installed filters somewhere in the
printing system.  man -t generates troff output and the correct
filters to generate postscript doen't appear to be configured by
default.

Oh, I have it working fine.  I was just noting that it may not work
out-of-the-box for everyone.  If it doesn't work, use lpfilter(1M) to
install the filter definitions in /etc/lp/fd.  The troff to postscript
converter is /usr/lib/lp/postscript/dpost should manual conversion be
desired.
