fixes duplicate n in man directory name

Duplicate n on https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/structure-locale.html in man directory name
Comment 1 Eitan Adler freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-01-06 22:23:18 UTC
I agree this confusing but I do not believe this patch is correct. In particular if you look carefully the second 'n' is italicized. What this is trying to say is that directories man1, man2, etc. get created. When skimming or with poor eyesight it is duplicated, and even when reading carefully it looks off.

I'm not sure of another solution other than perhaps adding some additional space between "man" and "n". Perhaps changing n to a different letter? Bolding it?

capitalize N

Indeed. Capitalizing n reduces confusion (somewhat slightly imho).
Comment 3 Eitan Adler freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2018-01-06 22:43:14 UTC
I'll capitalize it. Why the change to line 97?
