Copying Man pages

Copying the man pages to the floppy is no problem , but reading
the files from a windows pc is nearly impossible because hundreds of special characters are included in the output when I try to read the copied man page from Notebook.

Is there a way to format the manpage before i copy it to a floppy so that a windows pc can view it properly?

The floppies that i am trying to copy to have been formatted using the KDE floppy formatter to a dos

I don't have access to any windows programs or a perl interpreter on the windows machine that i will be using so i need it formatted correctly before copying. Thanks!

X-TILE(1)						      General Commands Manual							 X-TILE(1)

x-tile - select windows and adjust their tiling SYNOPSIS
x-tile [option][rows][columns] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the x-tile command. x-tile is a program that allows tiling selected windows as desired. In addition of the predefined tilings, it allows user to create up to two user defined tilings to be applied later. It also provides a system tray icon for faster access to tiling menu. OPTIONS
This program doesn't follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). Instead, it uses case sen- sitive single letter options, followed by arguments when required. A summary of options is included below. w Open the x-tile main window without using the panel. z Undo the latest tiling operation. v Tile all opened windows vertically. h Tile all opened windows horizontally. u Tile all opened windows triangularly, top up. d Tile all opened windows triangularly, top down. l Tile all opened windows triangularly, top left. r Tile all opened windows triangularly, top right. q Tile all opened windows in a four square grid. g Tile all opened windows in a grid with the given rows and columns. 1 Apply user defined tiling #1 to all opened windows. 2 Apply user defined tiling #2 to all opened windows. i Invert the order of the latest tiling operation. m Maximize all opened windows. M Unmaximize all opened windows. c Close all opened windows. Any other Show a brief summary of options. AUTHORS
