The reported escape sequence is "ESC % G ... ESC % @" which
is not the extended segments of CTEXT (described in the
section 6 of the ctext document), but the special sequence
for utf-8 (described in the newly inserted section 7 of the
ctext document distributed with XFree86, I'll attach it).

I've just commited a change to ctext-post-read-conversion
(in mule.el).  Could you please try it?  Eli, could you also
check my change?

I tried the latest Galeon.  It sends Emacs the same byte
sequence as what lynx does.
