document charset koi8-r, four letters above
in cp866 have codes E0, A0, 97, 9B in HEX respectively.

Yes. I beg a pardon.

So you should return to the previous document which point out to the current.
But if the current is first and even have not an up link ?
May be it is better just to remove line with META charset
from the printed output, but still show it on screen as now.

Does lynx ask server by different way if it retrieves source?
Anyway, people usually look sources only if they not satisfied by lynx output,
so it is *after* the state you need to keep as a "history".
But maybe the real "history of Lynx" is orthogonal to this obvious argue...
