Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-08-20 19:46:54 UTC
does the patch leave strings that have chars in the A1 to FE range (but ARE NOT
ISO-8859-x... but rather multibyte sequences) untouched?

What about multibyte sequences that use characters from 80 to 9F (GB18030,

What about 7-bit multibyte ISO-2022? (ISO-2022-JP, which is ascii with escape

Comment 3 Eido Inoue 2004-02-19 17:02:41 UTC
this is fixed in man-1.5m2, which normalizes everything to UTF-8.
