Oops, I misspoke. It is my rxvt man page that is messed up. I see stuff 
like this when I do
man rxvt
I see stuff like this:

     .YODLTAGSTART.  roffcmd  .SH  "NAME"  .YODLTAGEND.  rxvt (ouR
XVT) - a VT102 emulator for  the  X  window  system.YODLTAGSTART.
roffcmd .PP .YODLTAGEND.

Setting PAGER does not seem to affect anything for me.

Anyhow,when I do
alias less="less -R"

My ls -l | less problem is solved.
