Thank you for the suggestion. I have updated the "See also" section.

The "See Also" section has "convert" which makes no sense. There is no multi-value capability in "convert" and none of the other "mv*" commands reference it. There does not appear to be anything "convertish" about "nomv" but perhaps it would make a tiny bit of sense to have a reference to "nomv" in the "convert" section (not really) but there isn't one. This should be removed here.
