[Lynx-dev] UTF-8 MS Windows

I am having difficulty getting utf-8 characters to show up on the
screen in DOS cmd.exe windows.  I use the standard parenthesized batch
coding to do it,

chcp 65001
call lynx.bat
chcp 437

and the TT Lucida Console fonts.

But the UTF-8 bytes show up as individual boxes even with UNICODE
(UTF-8) in the options menu.  I am wondering if it is because the
bytes are send to standard output one by one.  I find, using g77, that
if I print each byte separately, they do not get recognized as part of
a utf-8 character.  If however I print them as a single character
string, they do show up correctly, most of them at least.

This was using Windows XP and lynx 2.8.7.  I am trying to use it to
show help files for some software of mine in case people do not have
access to a GUI.
