The description how a man page should look like. Usually your system
should have a package called "manpages" or similar. This package
contains the basic set of man pages. One of them is the man page
called man-pages[1]. So on the console you issue

man man-pages

And you get the description of how a man page should look like. 

Most likely it works already out of the box. If not, you might want to
search with your package manager.



[1] Actually, this page is translated in many languages already. So in
    case you have loclized man pages installed, this page might even
    come in your favorite language as well …
