Hi, I compiled and use version 2.8.8dev1 without problems.

But.... it won't do utf-8.

Did you use


when configuring?

The former version I used is 2.8.7dev4 packaged as lynx-cur by Debian
(-Etch). This version displays messages in dutch language ( not sure how
that is done ).

That's the --enable-nls option.

Starting both lynxes with exactly the same configuration give different
results on these testfiles:

( It is the "RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK" that goes wrong, the u-umlaut
is ok. )

They look consistent to me (using lynx + ncursesw).

The "-version" option tells which library it is built with:

~ (103) lynx -version
Lynx Version 2.8.8dev.1 (28 Aug 2009)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 0.9.8k, ncurses 5.7.20090829(wide)
Built on linux-gnu Aug 28 2009 20:18:57

Any clue's ? Should I change something in the compiletime options ?

Thanks, --Jasper.
