In addition, you have to make sure you actually get the raw text --
the "encoded" text in Joe's original post is missing crucial ESC (\033)
characters[*], so there's no way to decode it correctly.

I tried using "lynx -dump ..." myself, and it looks like it's lynx
which is doing the stripping; the documentation seems to indicate that
the "-raw" option will disable this stripping, but I couldn't get it
to work(maybe this only works for terminal display, not with -dump?).


[*] The correct binary text, with the escape characters replaced
by the two-character sequence "^[" to make Gnus happy, is:

   "^[$BEZ20^[(B ^[$B2mL-^[(B" say "TSUCHIYA Masatoshi"

Emacs can decode this using the above charset to:

   "土屋 雅稔" say "TSUCHIYA Masatoshi"
