Iacute-accent-in-manual-page

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

This manual page uses the \' groff sequence. Usually, the intent to generate an apostrophe, but that sequence actually renders as an acute accent.

For an apostrophe or a single closing quote, use plain '. For single opening quote, i.e. a straight downward line ' like the one used in shell commands, use '\(aq'.

Please refer to Bug#554897 and Bug#507673 for details.
