This is wrong.

Lynx assumes the document charset, if it’s not given, is the one
set forth in /etc/lynx.cfg:ASSUME_LOCAL_CHARSET.

The X*ML rule is UTF-8 for unlabelled content, though.

“It is inappropriate to require that a time represented as
 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
 seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
