man pages contain strange tags

When I open a manual page of an application, man replaces special 
characters with strange tags.
For example, I get <B4> written on a white background instead of ´
Now when I do something like:
export LC_ALL="nl_NL"
The correct character is used.
However I don't want to set locale options only because of man.
It worked before but I don't know how.
