Thaks a lot, I am very glad to hear that.

Well, I do not know so well about the technical aspect
of this issue but I have used the $LANG value and it seems
to work fine for (at least) Japanese users.

Generally speaking, Japanese users should set LANG
to ja_JP.ujis or ja_JP.eucJP etc. to realize the basic 
Japanese environment so I think the $LANG value might be 
possible candidate.  I guess that the situation is similar 
in other Asian countries.

But I do not know the situation, for example, in Europe
and so on.

Is it better to use the value of LC_* ?

In any way, I do not care what method to be used to determine
preferred language but I think it is important that lynx
has some mechanism to select automatically the preferred
