Bug#441820: libxcursor-dev: UTF-8 encoded man page

Package: libxcursor-dev
Version: 1:1.1.9-1
Severity: minor

The following manpages in your package appear to be UTF-8 encoded:


According to Colin Watson, "With some exceptions for Far Eastern
languages, manual pages should not at present be encoded using UTF-8.
As such, it's reasonable to file bugs against packages attempting to
use UTF-8 where it is not yet supported."

Hence I'm filing this bug. The solution for now seems to be to encode
the pages as 7-bit ASCII, using the appropriate *roff sequences to
produce accented characters.
