I think it's the man page.  When I view it in an SSH terminal, all the
quotes look like:  â?~â? (I haven't the slightest confidence those will
display in anybody's mail or news program the way I see them - "a-acute,
question mark", twice), and when I view it in the console on vt1
it's "a-circumflex" and two unprintable characters (twice).  The quotes
display perfectly in the Konqueror browser.
