Hi, what are man pages, or more generally, groff documents, supposed to be encoded in? I didn't find any reference to that in groff(7). Is it ASCII? The problem arises because I have to transform a Docbook XML document into a manpage; there, all spaces (ASCII 0x20) inside a <literallayout> are translated into 0xA0 in the output. I don't know what an A0 is supposed to be, but man ignores it when generating output, thus effectively removing the spaces from the output. If a groff document should be ASCII, then this is a bug in docbook-xsl. Otherwise, I don't know. You can reproduce the problem compiling the sitemap package from sid. [Side note: there's also another problem unrelated to this; see http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=763861&group_id=21935&atid=516914 for more information] Aaron Isotton [ http://www.isotton.com ] -- BOFH excuse #190: Proprietary Information.
