A little who-where-how on the "to specify the correct locale," please.
If I run "locale" without arguments it reports "japanese" for all
categories except LC_ALL=, which is blank.  Are you saying the user
needs to do something, or Lynx needs to do something?

Is Klaus W., or someone familiar with the news RFCs, on the list?  By
changing that to '!isspace(c)', I worry we could be opening Lynx's news
handling up to abuse, i.e., ability to post inappropriate control/escape
sequences.  (I'm asking, not complaining, nor blaming, nor arguing.)
