kernel-doc contains a lot of not utf-8 encoded files, e.g. iso-8859-1 encoded
files. Here is a not complete list:

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2007-02-03 15:55:17 EST
they don't contain any characters that can't be represented by iso8859 afaics,
so why is this a problem ?
Comment 2 Till Maas 2007-02-04 07:00:01 EST
The default encoding in Fedora is UTF-8, so when one views one of the non UTF-8
encoded files with less, the non ascii characters are not displayed correctly.
