I asked people publically to not disturb the list with comments that I
have made not directly related to Lynx.  The content of your post is not
*directly* related to Lynx.  Please respect my request.  Thank you.



You just restated your arguments on the list.  You complain that Lynx
does not support Unicode.  Well, it is clear from reading the code that
it does, EXCEPT for CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean).  There are historical
reasons dating back to when Lynx development was active at U. Kansas why
that is.  Putting that aside, if you expect Lynx to support Unicode,
then you must NOT use EUC-JP, SJIS, etc. as your display character set.
This is the second time I have pointed that fact out to you.  Please
read the chrtrans documentation again if you do not believe me.

You should be using UTF-8.  You quote Jungshik below.  He is telling
you in very precise English, much better than mine, how to do it.  Please
follow his instructions.

_Your_ "Unix", Linux, does support the full Unicode repertoire.  You can
get everything you need off of the Internet.
