I have Java 8 only (OpenJDK 1.8.0_181-b15).  Yes, the man pages are 
definitely unusable when composed entirely of HTML entities ;)

What is expected in the manual/*.html.XX files, entities or ISO-8859-1 
characters?  AFAICT either should be fine, the ISO-8859-1 characters 
look correct to me everywhere I checked, and the HTML files have

<meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type" 

so I don't see why we can't use ISO-8859-1 characters there?

Can we fudge to fail with Java 9 if that is what is breaking 
everything at the moment, and rely on people with Java 8 to regenerate 
the docs?
