However why not use one of the graphical man page viewers like manopen or gman? Search versiontracker and you can find about 5 or 6 to choose from.

I've tried them, but since I usually want a man page when I'm in the terminal anyway, it's easier to just use a window -- no application switch, just a window switch, if you want to scroll the man page and flip back to the other terminal. But I've printed some pages using the GUI tools.

Which (yet again!) brings me back to why I find X so useful -- you can do things the UINX way, or the GUI way, so you truly get the best of both worlds!
