instead of single quote char in debian man ?


Using putty to connect to Debian 5 box.
All single quote characters in manual pages are replaced with .
Putty character set is "ISO-8859-1:1998 (Latin-1, West Europe)", if I change charset to "ISO-8859-13:1998 (Latin-7, Baltic)" single quotes now are displayed as ā.

I don't know if this Debian's or putty's fault but CentOS OS displays correct ' char in it's man pages using the same putty config.

Possible to fix that ?

What happens if you set locale to "C"?

Happy Penguins!
