I require Lynx to not do this, because I use Unicode excessively.

On the other hand, selecting a nōn-UTF8 charset might want to do
that… but the tables are apparently hand-generated and do not cover
full Unicode, only the obvious stuff related to most legacy charsets.
Covering all of Unicode is going to be a crazy job anyway…

(… although a downconversion from SMP to BMP unicode, for us users
of uxterm, would be welcome…)

ah, that reminds me, thanks for the stellar entertainment that you and certain
other people provide on the Debian mailing lists │ sole reason I subscribed to
them (I'm not using Debian anywhere) is the entertainment factor │ Debian does
not strike me as a place for good humour, much less German admin-style humour
