Are you on a DOS mashine and use a communication program to connect a UNIX
account where lynx is running on?  If yes, learn your _communication program_
whether it "translate" input/output characters or use keyboard remapping,
try to disable any kind of character translation - it should be transparent
and 8bit clean.

Are you sure you need cp437 display in lynx?
Try lynx_help/keystrokes/test_display.html
and test/unicode.html from the lynx sources distribution.
