quoted strings in foo.Rd rendered as â

RKoenker
Another anomaly from our rhel5 system, again sessionInfo() below.
When I'm logged in remotely via ssh from my macpro and view  
documentation
files in my X11 window,  strings in single quotes in the files are all
abbreviated as â .   The same files appear fine when rendered in X11
using the local R,  and also appear fine in a terminal window on the
linux machine, so this could easily also be some sort of ssh/X11 issue
not R at all, but if someone had any suggestion for further checking
it would be greatly appreciated.

First step to check: update to a released version of R 2.10.0!

If that does not help, using options(useFancyQuotes = TRUE) in the
released version should (but possibly not as far back as your alpha
pre-release).

I suspect that whatever you mean my 'my X11 window' (it is the
application running in the window that matters, perhaps an xterm?) it
is set to the wrong character set.  I simply use a Mac terminal
window, and that ought to default to UTF-8 (but it can be changed, so
check if you try one).

I see the same behavior with:

Yes,  I did mean xterm, and yes in a mac terminal window I do get  
correct rendering, so
maybe I should just give up on xterm entirely, but old habits die hard.

Oops, you want FALSE to suppress it: TRUE is the default.

Thanks again, options(useFancyQuotes = FALSE)  works perfectly!
