I see your problem.  I found "BDF UM+", which is a fixed-width Unicode
font and its TTF file can be get from
I can use this font with PuTTY and see UTF-8 documents.  *I* think
looking is soso, but moving cursor is bad (highlighted text is

I also found unifont, which is an another fixed-width Unicode font.
It's distributed in HEX file but I could change it to TTF file using
hex2bdf and bdf2ttf utilities.  And it also can be used with PuTTY.
# fontsize 12 seems to be fine.

I tested with
    Lynx  : 2.8.4rel.1
    Server: Debian (Woody)
    Client: Windows2000 and PuTTY Release 0.54-jp20040423
Lynx's version may be old.
