I'm confused again.  Is your server's certificate a secret?  If not,
they why not provide it, so we can check whether connecting to your
server works on other architectures.

Lynx understands most URI types I know about.  There was some
discussion of allowing snews:; do not remember the resolution.  I
never tried ldap, sip, h323, I know nothing about them.

Do not think there is any problem with lynx here.  However, news:
semantic does not has a way to specify the charset.  Try going to `o'
and setting the default "assumed" charset...  Oh, maybe my logic to
automaticaly switch VIO charset is not supported with news:!  Try to
switch the charset from the default one (auto) to your current

Or maybe you just do not have defaulting to `auto'?  Change the
display charset to auto, then save `o'ptions.
