The heading "DIAGNOSTICS" is also used for section 1 and 8 commands to document process exit values and error messages.

Nice page, thanks!
A suggestion for the POD language section:
I would recommend the use of the "=over" "=item" and "=back" environment for the OPTIONS part. This is consistant with the usual man page behaviour.

thx
