man pages show backquotes as "u" with umlaut?


This is not a devastating problem or anything, but the man pages in my Red Hat 9 install (running inside a VMWare host running on Win2K server) are showing all backquotes as a u with an umlaut over it (the two dots like you see in German words).

I have not been able to resolve this using the VMWare tools package and wonder if there is any other avenue to persue. I can type a backquote and all is fine, it is only when displaying the man pages that I have the problem.

TIA,

@:-)
