Description of problem:
Some manpages when viewed with an UTF-8 locale show some characters
as "&&&". An example of this are the xmbind and nedit man pages where
some of the "|" and "'" characters appear as "&&&".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man nedit
2. look for "&&&"
3. LC_ALL=en_US man nedit
4. see that the "&&&" have disappeared, becoming "|" as they should
Ok, this was in fact a problem with my configuration... I had a
"export LESSCHARSET=latin1" buried in some initialization scripts.
