It looks like you're using a Microsoft mail client. How did you copy
and paste that manpage? Are you using a Windows telnet or ssh client?

If not, which terminal *are* you using? Does this persist between
gonme-terminal, xterm, and the Linux console (press CTRL-Alt-F1 to
log in).

Can you post the output of echo $LANG and echo $TERM, letting us know
which terminal you are using?

Thanks,

James.
