[Lynx-dev] Unicode display problem

i've been testing how far i can use Unicode for Ancient Greek & Esperanto.
one thing i've found is that -- following instructions --
only some of the characters appear with Lynx.  my test file is attached.

on Gentoo Linux + Lynx 2.8.5dev16, i created a virtual terminal via

  LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 xterm -u8 -fn 
"-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1" &

this being the font which is known to work with Vim & OpenOffice.
then i enter 'lynx testfile.html' & choose UTF8 under Options (Display),
i can see the Esperanto letters  h^ j^ u^  & Greek  alpha - omikron ,
but not Esp  c^ g^ s^  or Gk  pi - omega  (digamma is a problem everywhere).
all of them are displayed correctly using Konqueror & Galeon.

further, in the test file obtained via Lynx help (Options menu),
i can see only  00A9 03BB 042E 043B , but none of the others.

is this a font problem ?  does anyone have a solution to offer ?
