I have been told that yet again, attempts to use lynx 2.8.7dev5
on the page updating function of has resulted in the
page being damaged.  Here's a diff of the change - my "real" change
was some text added to the bottom of the page (and a blank line
added to the top of the page).

What I see is problems editing UTF-8 text (which is a known limitation).

For anything complicated in a textarea, I'd assume you would
use an external editor, e.g., using ^X-e.  Are you doing that?

(If lynx is mishanding text from an external editor, that's a
different issue which can be fixed a little easier than by
rewriting the input code).
