Description J. J. Ramsey 2003-01-02 15:05:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
If I try to view a man page in XTerm, most of the hyphens, especially those that
are part of option flags (i.e. -f or --foo) are invisible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "man less" in an XTerm
2. Scroll down to the OPTIONS section.

    

Actual Results:  The hyphens in the options flags are replaced by spaces.

Expected Results:  The hyphens in the options flags should be visible.

Additional info:

This seems to be a UTF-8 issue. If NROFF in /etc/man.config is changed to
"/usr/bin/nroff -c -Tlatin1 -mandoc", the problem goes away.

gnome-terminal is not affected by this bug.
