I can't imagine that it does, nor does the man page specify so.

The trouble is that I can't properly read man pages on the computer I'm using (iMac G3 500MHz - YDL 4.0.1 kernel 2.6.10-1.ydl.1) as the display is shifted to the left so I can't read some of the text. I'm trying to find ways to remedy it and i thought that changing the font resolution may help.

Since you seem to be capable of browsing the 'net, check out the man page here.

A nice dry wit.

Thanks though, very useful. I've bookmarked it for later.

Sorry, I didn't mean for it to be taken as sardonic. I just meant that it would be easier for me to point you to it online than to, say, post the whole thing here. There are a number of fonts and options that you can try to set what works best for you.
