Remove the non-ASCII characters, or declare an encoding.
You didn't tell us your OS -- one good way I find on Linux to spot such
characters is to use 'less 'in the C locale. Another is something like
foo <- readLines("foo.Rd")
foo2 <- iconv(foo, "", "ASCII", sub="byte")
foo2[foo2 != foo]
which should show the line(s) concerned with non-ASCII characters
highlighted as <xx>.
