well... using uxterm, and I did just this to view the unicode.html
file from the sources:

        a) unset LYNX_CFG (so that I would not be confused by my local settings)
        b) run lynx...
        c) in the options menu I set "Use locale-based character set" ON
        d) set "Display character set" to "UNICODE (UTF-8)".

The resulting display looks okay to me -

This is with the Fedora18 package for 2.8.7rel.1 (I'm at the moment
working on an rpm script for a different program).
