Glad to hear there is specialist on Lynx Cyrillic:
The following is a reply from Leonid Pauzner, the lynx developer most

future questions of this nature would probably best go to lynx-dev.

copy working LYNX parameters. I can send you this problem page. Have you
got enough time to try to browse it with your LYNX?
