It was Glen who brought up character sets. I just pointed out that the

Well, I believe that it *is* very easy to add a stylesheet reference
inside the head tag of any website page (all of my CVS related
webpages use this) so that the font can be defined.
In my case I define the stylesheet and in the stylesheet I have this:
  color: black; background: white;
  font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
  font-size: 10pt;
and other definitions.
This font family makes it easy to see the difference between the
number one (1) and lowercase letter L (l), which is not possible on
the current manual page.
