commit d11ac64ecf03f7896ebc5e776e078fdc1f0543a4

    doc: replace '×' symbol with 'x'
    
    Non-ascii chars are not correctly rendered in both MAN and HTML output or
    may even cause compilation failure. Thus avoid to use them until we find
    a satisfying way to deal with them.
    
    Fix trac ticket #2243.

Thanks for the report.
