[Lynx-dev] French accents

I have a pre-compiled version (2.8.7rel.1) of Lynx for MS Windows.  I am not using any "terminal software" or the likes.  When I view a webpage with accents, the accented characters display other ASCII characters rather than the correct characters.
I have tried to change the markup (HTML) to use "é" and the likes, this has ZERO effect.  Same characters appear as if I used the accented characters in the first place (directly in the page).
My Lynx Display Character Set is "Western (ISO-8859-1)" and the assumed document character set is "iso-8859-1" with raw 8-bit "ON".
The HTML webpage has at the very top:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
Which is supposed to support French, Spanish and German.
Can someone please tell what I need to do to get Lynx to properly display my "accented" content?
Thank you,
Kristopher R. Kycia
