Characters like œ look fine in Lynx on Parkes, as do Turkish HTML pages. I've asked rms if it's still a problem for him.

This seems to be default behavior for lynx with this page. http://www.divvun.no/doc/tools/utf-8-setup.html#lynx describes how to manually override to utf-8. Non-ASCII characters then display ok for me.

(from rms)

When I view the file below using lynx ~/foo.html, all the non-ASCII characters come out blank. They work ok when I display the file with `more'
