If only locales didn't slow down all my boxes except for my big
Athlon64.  Running a mixed C and UTF-8 home network is a PITA because
when you ssh in you have to remember to start with LANG=C anyway.  

So your ??s look like ??s to me.

Its not that bad since one ?? would mean the same as another ?? to me

What gets me is when a man page is written in english and "'" gets
translated as "?", as in can?t or "'" is a square white blob (on a
regular VT).  Why couldn't whoever wrote it in english have used the
standard english "'" glyph instead of a UTF thingy?
