I have a question for you; it's at the end of this posting.

Dude, I am trying to verify that my alterations to lynx don't affect 
viewing *your* euc-jp web pages (and others like them) in multibyte 

Seems pretty lynx-related to me.


>You complain that Lynx does not support Unicode.  
I did not say that Lynx does not support Unicode.

In my posting "Display of SGML Greek characters" on 8/11/02, I said
the character translation tables (and entity.h) don't seem to support unicode 
above U+FFFF.  If I'm wrong about this, please explain how
it is meant to work.

>You should be using UTF-8.  
EUC-JP pages really *should* display properly in all three environments
kterm, rxvt, and xterm.  It appears that the problem lies in lynx.
Some of us do care about this; you don't have to.

>You quote Jungshik below.  He is telling you in very precise English, 
>much better than mine, how to do it.  Please follow his instructions.
My understanding of Jungshik's posting of Mon, 9/19/02 13:00:01 -0400 
(EDT) is that he doesn't think the current version of lynx could 
display your pages as your image files show.  My experiments confirm 
that assessment.

It would be very helpful to me if you would ask your sysadmin how
this is occurring.  I wonder if somebody has hacked something into
the lynx code.  Or maybe it's just a setting I've missed, but
Jungshik doesn't seem to thing so.  Or maybe your sysadmin is using
a fancy trick!  Please let us know.

Thanks in advance!
