        That's the point of putting a META at the top of the bookmark
file.  If you use Lynx with more than one display character set, you
have potentially 26 bookmark files, and can arrange for ones which
will be used to receive bookmarks with the appropriate META for your
current display character set.  When you view them with a different
display character set, the META will induce the appropriate conversion,
and you can 'a'dd that to another bookmark file appropriate for your
current display character set.
