[Lynx-dev] UTF-8 editing in 2.8.7dev.8

Hi people,

the new version indeed has m̲u̲c̲h̲ better editing capabilities for UTF-8,
with regards to cursor positioning and backspace handling. The exception
is CJK characters (double-wide, e.g. 何), which make the cursor mis-
position, again. Still, it's worth the upgrade!

Tom, you should really look at some non-English webpages using Lynx to
test all this, for example form fields are now like this:

   [23]« [24][(2)__2. Tag 2: Fahrrad fahren will gelernt sein_]
when using only ASCII characters, but
   [23]« [24][(7)__7. Special: Filchs Kämmerchen______________
when having non-ASCII unicode characters inside.

My options screen still looks like this:

  General Preferences
  User mode                        : [5][(3)__Advanced____]
  Editor                           : 
  Type of Search                   : [7][(1)__Case insensitive]

... so nothing has changed here, links-and-form-fields-are-numbered still
leads to mis-displaying things.

Disabling it doesn't help here:

   « [7. Special: Filchs Kämmerchen______________

Hm. It doesn't help the options screen either:

  General Preferences
  User mode                        : [Advanced____]
  Editor                           : 
  Type of Search                   : [Case insensitive]

This is MirBSD #10-RELEASE, ncursesw 5.5.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
