<para>The <parameter>man.font.links</parameter> parameter
specifies the font for output of links (<tag>ulink</tag> instances
and any instances of any element with an <tag
  class="attribute">xlink:href</tag> attribute).</para>

<para>The value of <parameter>man.font.links</parameter> must be
  either <literal>B</literal> or <literal>I</literal>, or empty. If
the value is empty, no font formatting is applied to links.</para>

<para>If you set <parameter>man.endnotes.are.numbered</parameter> and/or
<parameter>man.endnotes.list.enabled</parameter> to zero (disabled), then
you should probably also set an empty value for
<parameter>man.font.links</parameter>. But if
<parameter>man.endnotes.are.numbered</parameter> is non-zero (enabled),
you should probably keep
<parameter>man.font.links</parameter> set to
<literal>B</literal> or <literal>I</literal><footnote><para>The
    main purpose of applying a font format to links in most output
formats it to indicate that the formatted text is
“clickable”; given that links rendered in man pages are
not “real” hyperlinks that users can click on, it might
seem like there is never a good reason to have font formatting for
link contents in man output.</para>
<para>In fact, if you suppress the
display of inline link references (by setting
<parameter>man.endnotes.are.numbered</parameter> to zero), there is no
good reason to apply font formatting to links. However, if
<parameter>man.endnotes.are.numbered</parameter> is non-zero, having
font formatting for links (arguably) serves a purpose: It provides
“context” information about exactly what part of the text
is being “annotated” by the link. Depending on how you
mark up your content, that context information may or may not
have value.</para></footnote>.</para>
