Diff to previous 1.32 (unified)

Split tagging into a validation part including prioritization
in tag.{h,c} and {mdoc,man}_validate.c
and into a formatting part including command line argument checking
in term_tag.{h,c}, html.c, and {mdoc|man}_{term|html}.c.

Immediate functional benefits include:
* Improved prioritization of automatic tags for .Em and .Sy.
* Avoiding bogus automatic tags when .Em, .Fn, or .Sy are explicitly tagged.
* Explicit tagging of .Er and .Fl now works in HTML output.
* Automatic tagging of .IP and .TP now works in HTML output.
But mainly, this patch provides clean earth to build further improvements on.

Technical changes:
* Main program: Write a tag file for ASCII and UTF-8 output only.
* All formatters: There is no more need to delay writing the tags.
* mdoc(7)+man(7) formatters: No more need for elaborate syntax tree inspection.
* HTML formatter: If available, use the "string" attribute as the tag.
* HTML formatter: New function to write permalinks, to reduce code duplication.

Style cleanup in the vicinity while here:
* mdoc(7) terminal formatter: To set up bold font for children,
defer to termp_bold_pre() rather than calling term_fontpush() manually.
* mdoc(7) terminal formatter: Garbage collect some duplicate functions.
* mdoc(7) HTML formatter: Unify <code> handling, delete redundant functions.
* Where possible, use switch statements rather than if cascades.
* Get rid of some more Yoda notation.

The necessity for such changes was first discussed with kn@, but i didn't
bother him with a request to review the resulting -673/+782 line patch.
