Re: Problem with iso8859 on xterm/with man(1)

oddly enough, this still did not solve the problem. But you narrowed it
down - it is not the terminal, but less(1) that cannot show the iso
Manually using gunzip -c <manpage.gz> | more shows iso-latin characters,
using | less does not.
So now we know the culprit. Is there an alternative package I can use
for less? Or is the current version of less buggy?
$ less --version
less  version 332+iso242
