<para>For converting certain Unicode symbols and special characters in
UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoded XML source to appropriate groff/roff
equivalents in man-page output, the DocBook XSL Stylesheets
distribution includes an <link xlink:href="">XSLT character
map</link>. That character map can be considered the standard roff
character map for the distribution.</para>
<para>If the value of the <parameter>man.charmap.uri</parameter>
parameter is non-empty, that value is used as the URI for the location
for an alternate roff character map to use in place of the standard
roff character map provided in the distribution.</para>
<para>Do not set a value for <parameter>man.charmap.uri</parameter>
unless you have a custom roff character map that differs from the
standard one provided in the distribution.</para>
