[Lynx-dev] lynx display buffer questions

In response to a question I had a bit ago about why
lynx forces a line break in really long lines, I
was told that was because lynx has display buffers
that are 1024 and lines longer than that are split.

Has anyone experimented with moving to a dynamically
allocated buffer mechanism, at least for display
buffers, so that lines could be as long as they need
to be?

A second question; has anyone experimented with 
using lynx form input elements to see whether it
is 8 bit, Unicode clean?  That is, if someone
has a text edit type web application, and the text
to be edited has a mix of data in chinese, korean, greek and
English, etc. and in lynx, the data is edited, will the
the original text characters remain unchanged?
I use a web site ( which frequently has various unicode
characters (the pages have a lot of code) and there
are times when the unicode is getting corrupted.  I
suspect that perhaps it is happening when I update
a page via Lynx.  It's hard for me to tell, because
I am not set up to display the special characters
in my text windows, so all I see are weird sequences
before and after, but I see people complain
at times about their special characters being trashed.
But there are a lot of people updating these pages,
and so it could be some other browser.
