Man and UTF-8.

Dear mentors,

for a program with no upstream manual page, I generated one stub with help2man,
which unfortunately duplicated the program's output, and tidied the source by
manual editing. But I run into another problem: unicode characters in the nroff
source get corrupted. Is there a way to put an indication in the manpage source
code for the nroff parser, that the UTF-8 encoding is used?

Have a nice day,
