Description of problem:
the minus sign is not represented correctly in some man pages.
when giving the man command the "-" characther is represented as a small
quadrat and text is cluttered.

there also seems to be a problem with representation 
of swedish charachters in some cases, e.g:
swedish chars in outgoing mail (headers) is converted to several "currency" (eg.
Yen) chars

RH8.0 was installed with US-English as primary (system) language and Swedish as
additional language.

This is related to Bug 80030 where some terminals and applications only use
7-bit character sets (instead of the default system-wide setting of UTF8).  You
can correct the problem for English translated pages by following the steps
outlined within the referenced bug.
