problem with Red Hat 8 man page

After installing Red Hat 8, I can log in via Terminal and use man command to see the content of manual fine; however, when I use telnet or ssh to log in, when I use man command it gave me a weird, unreadable characters. Do you know what happened?

Thank you.

Has to do w/ the language settings. I found this fix at:

> I haven't heard a good reason to use UTF-8 yet, so I changed the LANG
> variable as well.
> $ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n
> # LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
> LANG="en_US"
> SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en"
> SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
