Yet another option for viewing 'man' pages UNIX
Stupid simple -- yet feature full. Just go to the osxfaq.com MAN pages link. You get alphabetical access to the entire collection, or you can look at a "man" chapter listing (commands, syscalls, etc.) at once.

A huge one like "tcsh" is easy to read and searchable with command-F. The main advantage, though, is that if you use a superior browser that does tabs ;), you can open linked pages without losing the one you're in.

If you like HTML, it's done already, just save the site.

Use PHP and your own machine

If you have PHP installed, look at http://www2.linuxpakistan.net/man.php Use this link to get the PHP source, and save it on your own machine: http://www2.linuxpakistan.net/man.php?source=1 You can then use a web browser to view the man pages that are local to your Mac.
