Thank you for reporting.

I can confirm this for 4.2-rc2 using Linux.

When browsing the Octave documentation using the GUI on Win7 64bit neutral quotation marks (prime symbols) that surround variable names and snippets of code in the text are displayed as an "a" with a circumflex (â). I attach a screenshot. This problem does not occur when using help, so I chose the category "GUI".
I have seen the same problem with Octave 4.0.3 and 4.2.0-rc1.
