Yeah, you're right.
I was simply assuming that when getting the screen full of garbage ..
that's the ja manpage, so it was correct :-)

OK just remove that line, or put zero in line 1340 (humm ... my source


I want to get out with this version, as it has a lot of fixes.
Any other language can test it?
I've tested with hungarian, but it works good also with latin1, so ...

One question concern me: how do you switch set of characters in your
console/xterm ? I mean if the page is in "ja" it displays in japanes,
else in english. But you need to switch also the charset, isn't it?

In any case, this will not work untill we will have merged jgroff with
groff and jless with less.
