This is caused by the <big> tags in the HTML source. The big text starts when the nested <big> tags start to appear.

I was redirected here from http://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?40781

On Arch Linux, groff version 1.22.2

Steps to reproduce:
1) Obtain the file gcc.1 by uncompressing /usr/share/man/man1/gcc.1.gz or see the attached files in this bug report
2) "groff -mandoc -Thtml ./gcc.1 1> gcc.html 2> errors.html"
3) "firefox ./gcc.html"
4) Scroll to the middle of the page
5) Huge fonts are unreadable

Alternativley, just run "man -Hfirefox gcc".
