yes - it has the meta tags after the title for UTF-8, but has a BOM right up front. Lynx isn't seeing the charset tag when it gets the page.

tidy doesn't like the file

futuremeetings.html:1:1: - Warning: specified input encoding (iso-8859-1) does 
not match actual input encoding (utf-8)

The UTF-8 BOM is redundant (since it doesn't tell anything about the byte-order, and since there's no useful content in the headers that
would be in UTF-8 before the charset has to be parsed).

This one doesn't have a charset, but it's in the header.
That's in the content-type - which is ok:

(perhaps lynx is not parsing that - I don't see it in the trace)
