I think they are supposed to be quotation marks, but not completely
sure. How do I get man to display what the author intended. I've
tried reconfiguring localss, but that doesn't seem to change the
situation. Is there some magic to make the locales reconfig actually
happen after dpkg-reconfigure is completed? Or what? Something
completely different?

Also I'm using gnome desktop to run gnome terminal and emacs. Could
those bolix the locales?

At least post the output of 'locale'.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
