[mercury-users] issue with the tutorial book.pdf

I installed release of the day 2010-06-23, on Ubuntu 10.4, and it does work.

I have an issue with the tutorial book.pdf downloaded from the site.
Every - (minus) character in the PDF is not a true minus ASCII
character, as this shell command shows :

echo  mercury-users-request | od -c
0000000   m   e   r   c   u   r   y 342 210 222   u   s   e   r   s 342
0000020 210 222   r   e   q   u   e   s   t  \n

This is annoying when one wants to paste code from the PDF. Also the "
(double quote) , and the _ (underline) are not correct.
Typo in tutorial book.pdf : "Et voila!" should be "Et voilĂ !" .

This problem does not occur in user manual locally generated by make
:) . However it has an empty Table of Contents.

Kind regards
