the character problem in my cygwin manpage

Tue Jul 31 16:50:00 GMT 2007

my cygwin man pages are mixed with error characters (such as âˆâˆ’c).
this is the result of 'man ls', please help to locate the problem.
LS(1)                            User Commands                           LS(1)

       ls �list directory contents

       ls [OPTION]... [FILE]...

       List information about the FILEs (the current directory by
default).  Sort entries alphabetically if none
       of −cftuvSUX nor −−sort.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       −a, −−all
              do not ignore entries starting with .
