Actually, with the release of MacOSX porting might be a lot easier
than it was.  OSX is apparently built over a Berkley UNIX base.
[I'm guessing a BSD kernel with the Mac GUI for a shell.]  In fact,
if some sort of terminal program is supplied, there may be very
little work required to make Lynx run here.

Unicode is supported on OSX.

Unfortunately, I know very little about this operating system,
so I can't really tell you much.  And it's unlikely I'll learn
anything first-hand because its hardware requirements are a bit

On using Lynx via shell account, this seems to work ok:
        Display character set : [Macintosh (8 bit)]
[from the Options page -- can also be set in lynx.cfg]

This one doesn't work for DOS?

Well, you were talking about news-reading, and I'm only talking
aout HTML rendering here.
