According to Andoni Ayala:

Are you sure it's the parse_doc.pl script, and not htdig, that's splitting
the words? Do you have your locale set correctly? See

You should probably also use an external converter, such as conv_doc.pl or
better yet, doc2html, as you'll get better results than with parse_doc.pl.
The doc2html converter also makes it easier to add other conversion
programs.
