Forgive me for poking my nose in here, but I wanted to ask about
that particular problem in order to make sure I have the DocBook
manpages stylesheet doing what it should.
So, to be clear, is the following description correct?
If you put a U+002D HYPHEN-MINUS character into the source for a
groff file, in certain environments (e.g., in a UTF-8
environment), it will get output as a U+2010 HYPHEN character.
And, by the way, if the above is correct, is there a documented
rationale for why groff outputs a U+2010 for it instead of a
U+002D? (Some Unicode recommendation?)
