Yes, maybe... 'someone' should try. There isn't really a good reason
(that I know) why lynx should *not* use specific replacement strings
given in that way. It probably won't "out of the box", because shortcuts
are taken for CJK in various places.

Well, if you start playing with it and then say "but it doesn't work as
expected", there is something concrete to look into (for me or someone
else). Without that, there isn't that much incentive. Although now I
am curious enough to maybe try my own suggestions; but I couldn't really
tell whether (if they at least kinda-work) they actually show the right
characters (except by some bothersome byte-by-byte comparison).

I didn't follow the EXP_JAPANESE_SPACES story; could you summarize?

Please let me know what happens.
