  I got the same result under other Japanese terminal emulators
(gnome-terminal launched under ja_JP.eucJP locale, luit launched
under ja_JP.eucJP locale that is run inside UTF-8 xterm, kterm,
rxvt ).  That's exactly what I expected because lynx does NOT have
any ability to map Unicode/ISO 10646 characters to characters in CJK
(multibyte) legacy encodings as I wrote in my message kindly forwarded
by Thomas (
Lynx CAN map Unicode/ISO 10646 characters to single byte legacy encodings
(ISO-8859-x, windows-12xx, KOI8-R/U), but it CANNOT do that for multibyte
legacy encodings. That's why I suggested Lynx makes use of iconv(3)
for conversions between various encodings.

  It's really strange that Henry's screenshot showed Greek characters
represented both in EUC-JP encoding and in NCRs as Greek characters
(i.e. without transliteration). At first, I thought the conversion
between Unicode and CJK legacy encodings might have been added to the
newest snapshot of Lynx. I downloaded and compiled it, but the result
was the same. Henry, could you tell me what you did we don't know about
to make that happen?
