esc characters 17 Years, 9 Months ago  
if i ssh to a linux box and then "man xinetd"
the '-' character (ie. for the options) is not displayed properly.
Ive tried every terminal type under "VT Options" (vt52->vt320->and the rest) and none has displayed this properly.
a dump of a log shows that character as "E2,88,92", some sort of escape sequence.

what do i have to do, to get this displayed properly ??

Dave,

I'm guessing that you're running RedHat 8, because the new default character encoding for RedHat is UTF-8. Under UTF-8, hyphens are encoded into a multi-byte character string and only with UTF-8 decoding enabled on the client side (Options->Properties->Appearance) will the character display properly.

Because the Hyphen character (different from an ASCII minus '-' character) is missing from most Latin fonts, AbsoluteTelnet 2.12 goes one step further and replaces the hyphen with the ASCII minus when displayed.

So, download 2.12 and enable UTF-8 decoding and you should be all set!!
