man page encoding

Small gripe concerning your outstanding work.

I have always used the "man" pages to look up command line options.  Now
I find that if I use the mouse to drag/drop an option from the "man"
page output to a term window it doesn't work in a bash shell ... for
some reason the "-" char in the "man" page output is not the same "-"
char that bash expects (the man page "-" char is three bytes long 0xe2
0x88 0x92).  Whats worse is that the char looks the same as the standard
'-' (ASCII, 0x2d) in the term window.  When the command is run it always
results bad and critic output.

Can this be fixed?
