Thanks Patrick - it worked! Ijust set $LANG to en_CA.ISO-8859-1. This
solved both the man and Acrobat problems. Can anyone tell me where
these variables are initialized? Are they part of some larger-scoped
language setup or will just changing them be enough? Why does RedHat
set it to UTF-8 when it doesn't even adequtely work for displaying man
pages? I don't know much about international character sets (ASCII's
about it) so if anyone has a link they could point me to that would
tutor me I'd be really appreciative.
I know I know - loose Red Hat. I'll replace it with Debian as soon as I
have the time.
