This machine has XP on it, but I can use the other Centos machine if 
it's up and running which is not all the time.  The man pages display 
correctly when viewing from the other machine using just a normal 
terminal window.  It's almost like putty can't display the bolded 
characters, or tries to display them maybe in the same color as the 
background.  I'll check that on putty to make sure I don't intentionally 
shoot my foot off!
