It must fail because there is no mechanism to convert iso-2022-jp to
utf-8 in current Lynx code.

and my mail.

I think adding iso-2022-jp to utf-8 support is too large task for me.
I'm hesitating to do it because I don't have enough time.

I don't know well but if utf-8 terminal emulator will become standard
in the near future, Lynx might be an outdated program for Japanese.
