[Lynx-dev] Emoji in lynx

Dear lynx-dev,

is it a known problem that lynx doesn't display Emoji?

To reproduce, install some Emoji font:
$ sudo wget "" -o /usr/share/fonts/truetype/noto/NotoEmoji-Regular.ttfΒ 

The following works as expected:
$ lynx -dump | grep 1F60x
Β Β  U+1F60x πŸ˜€ 😁 πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜„ πŸ˜… πŸ˜† πŸ˜‡ 😈 πŸ˜‰ 😊 πŸ˜‹ 😌 😍 😎 😏

Here's a screenshot, just in case:

However, when I use lynx to open (without -dump), it looks very empty. Note that this is in the same terminal that had no problem rendering the Emoji in β€œlynx -dump | grep” just fine.

Just speculating, is this is really a lynx problem, or is perhaps ncurses broken for Unicode codepoints above U+0FFFF?
