elinks also doesn't work for CJK. for another testcase,
LANG=ko_KR.UTF-8 elinks http://kr.yahoo.com/
LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8 elinks http://cn.yahoo.com/
LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8 elinks http://tw.yahoo.com/

I have feedback about it from upstream developers.

Elinks doesn't use UTF8 internaly and doens't expect it in rendering
algorithms. Elink does conversion to UTF8 before output to screen --
but for multibytes like ko_KR.UTF-8 it destroys everything that
rendering alorithm prepared for page.

Other words, elinks hasn't real UTF8 support.

Closing bug - proper support for UTF-8 in "elinks" has to be done upstream.
