So it is Lynx that is prefixing the "extra" charset=iso-8859-1 META at
the top of the page.  Thanks for correcting me on that point.  Also,
apologies to Thorsten for my having added to the confusion.

BUT, now I'm more curious than ever.  Am I right to continue to assume
this is a case of misconfiguration of the server?  To have Lynx render
the page ""; correctly (at least on my system)
the charset meta must be the one in the header, "charset=euc-jp", not
the one Lynx prefixes, "charset=iso-8859-1".  After downloading the page
with Lynx, either deleting the META that Lynx prefixes, or editing it to
"euc-jp", fixes the rendering of the Japanese.

Is there a bug in Lynx?  Specifically, what should "Assumed document
character set" in the "Display and Character Set" section of the O)ptions
Menu do?  If I change it from "iso-8859-1" to "euc-jp" there is no change
in the rendering of the page; it is still garbled.  Shouldn't that be a
manual override that would allow Lynx to render the page correctly?

I ask because (at least my Japanized edition of) MSIE has a way to
correct the display by manually chosing "Japanese (EUC)" under
"Encoding(D)" in the "Display(V)" pull-down.  It would be nice if Lynx
could do that, too.
