Anyway, I kind of wonder if the `Load Internally' thing worked
for him.  Is a bit tedious since it adds an extra step to viewing
any UTF-8 page, but I managed okay.

I've wanted to view all sorts of text/* files (CSS, JavaScript, etc.) in addition to various encodings. I've generally saved to disk and then opened from there. Never understood why Lynx made me go through that, as Lynx is so smart in other ways.

There's two different cases:

a) UTF-8 is an encoding that wasn't supported in lynx 2.7.1, so (like some
CJK encodings still unsupported...), lynx just downloads it.

b) CSS, etc., are different mime types.  In principle, one could lynx
to pretend they're just a type of plain-text (but that's not always simple).
