[Lynx-dev] non-ascii characters in URLs

Dear Lynx Team,

URLs with non-ascii characers are getting more popular in Europe.
For example: http://www.hö (German site).

lynx releases (2.8.6 and 2.8.7) cannot deal with such URLs on my suse or
debian mashines, while various grafic browsers and even LINKS on the
same systems can handel such URLs. More precisely:
lynx cannot connect the remote host for this URLs.
The effect is the same when specifiying the URL on the command line, in
the goto-command or when the URL is a link in a HTML document.
I also tryed to map the character "ö" by ö . No effect.
Is this a problem of setting the characterset (I use ISO Latin 1,
iso-8859-1) or LOCALE?

Can someone from the developper team try to visit the example site,
please? Do you have the same problem with the current lynx-dev version?

Thanks for your help
