Weird Characters in terminal


when I view man pages and web pages (and probably other things) weird characters popup like A a with a ^ above it that is before a copyright symbol,
GNOME terminal doesn't have this problem though so I couldn't take a screenshot
this annoys me because i like to use the commandline without a Xserver running because my computer is weak(sorry about all those becauses there, I hope my post is readable, and I know I'm not very detailed but I think it might be because it can't display those characters or something)

oh yeah the distro is Ubuntu
