By the way, this file can also show one of the "interesting" problems
with UTF-8 display.

View it in an UTF-8 environment (new xterm with -u8, or linux console;
try both if possible; try a lynx with ncurses and a lynx with slang),
with appropriately set display character set.  (If using linux console,
I assume the loaded unicode translation map of the kernel uses a
replacement glyph i.e. a mapping for 0xfffd.)

Columns appear not properly aligned. (In most cases; it may depend
on the actual curses/slang version and/or terminal description.)
Now do WHEREIS ("/") search for " " (or "  " or "   " etc.).
By forcing some highlighting of the runs of spaces, suddenly
alignment is restored.
