zcat $(man -wa aptitude) | hd | less
shows ASCII only, as far as I looked.
man aptitude | hd | less
shows a lot of UTF-looking stuff, so it seems the "culprit" is "man",
as configured in kubuntu. (Actually, it seems that kubuntu has
decided to "go UTF", so the real culprits now are applications which
don't support UTF.)
Many would prefer to keep email pure ASCII, but I'll have to look into
the use of UTF in email, since it's probably unavoidable.
