AFAICT, Lynx on Win32 uses cp437 as it’s a console programme.
You should try setting that in the (O)ptions menu. Maybe try
some other codepage, maybe the system menu (of the window)
has an option.

You should also verify that the characters you are trying to
display are all supported by the charset used (Lynx automati-
cally transliterates them otherwise).

By the way, UTF-8 is the standard these days…

Your mails come over somewhat rude and shouting. I’d suggest
to stop that.

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
