Subject Re: Accents
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2016 13:08:27 GMT
This bug was about error messages returned by httpd. (docs/error directory)

But here, we talk about manual pages of httpd documentation in 
docs/manual directory ? (as far as I understand)
And I confirm that HTML entities are not necessary for accented 
characters display.

Perhaps It creates other technical problems that we can't see as 
committers ?
