Just a comment.
Although this works for this one man page, it only removes two specific
UTF-8 characters in a specified sequence. There are potentially 254
additional characters that this command does not change. It is not a
general solution for all man pages.
Maybe there aren't any others. I haven't checked.
I personally think this sets a bad precedent. Do we need to check the
info pages too? What is the harm in leaving the man pages the way they are?
Just my 2 ¢s
