Ok I fount that there are bugs already filled for it. Generally there are 2 
problems:
1. Groff is not able to format utf8 characters properly, there are bugs 
No:121502, and 190288 for it,
2. Manual conversion to utf8, there are many bug reports filled for it, for 
different national manuals, for example polish bug No 122271.


Right now, the bugs for manual conversion are held until groff problem will be 
solved.


Best regards
