Dear Thorsten,

Many thanks for your prompt and so helpful response !

Yes, indeed, thanks !
Now I tried to save this change to disk but i does not work. I checked
/etc/lynx-cur/* to see if perhaps it was not allowed for users to save
tis setting but couldn't find anything either. Cn somebody help on this,
please ?

Also: would it be possible to tell lynx to assume yes as an answer to
this question, so things would work even if nothing is fixed on the
server... ?

Checked, thanks. I'm wondering: how do other browsers do to still be
able to display the content ? Do they simply ignore the declared
encoding and use something like file to find out hat's the actual
encoding ?
