Additional info:
Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2004-08-04 21:10:12 EDT
Fixed in 0.5.1-3. pending for FC2 updates.
Comment 2 Lawrence Lim 2004-09-13 22:16:49 EDT
FC2-updates for w3m still does not exist. 
Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-10-03 16:28:01 EDT
Bruno Haible claims that glibc would do this translation.
Does Fedora use a reduced set of runtime translations?
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-10-04 02:47:28 EDT
er, since the manpage doesn't have any tags to determine which
encoding is used, glibc shouldn't be able to do anything. instead, we
have the hacked man and groff to detect the encoding - if the manpage
is using non-UTF-8 encoding, it also shows the warning message on the
top of manpage.
Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2004-10-04 17:29:17 EDT
oops - sorry.  I was looking at a comment about
message files in a different window and responded
to the wrong one.
Comment 6 Akira TAGOH 2004-10-15 04:53:18 EDT
fixed in 0.5.1-3.1 for FC2-updates
