Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-01-13 18:02:24 UTC
The RELEASE-NOTES-en.txt file contains control characters after every section
number in the body of the text (i.e., not in the outline in the very beginning).
 If you less /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-4.91-1/RELEASE-NOTES-en.txt, you find
stuff like this:

2.\001Overview of Fedora Core 4 test1

(yeah, it says FC4T1, but that's a separate bug :-)

The \001 looks very ugly, more embarrassingly so in the installer release notes

Reassigning to a toolchain expert to see what is happening here.

Comment 2 Tommy Reynolds 2006-01-25 22:13:10 UTC
I am seeing a 0xC2 0xA0 unicode sequence here, instead of the \001 you mention.

Eterm barfs on it but gnome-terminal displays the text without any artifacts.

This is probably a locale problem when generating the text file versions.  I'll
check further.
