Comment 2 Kamil Dudka 2008-07-30 11:30:27 EDT
This displacement is caused by UTF-8 characters in link's text. The same 
behavior can be seen on 0.12 branch of elinks with disabled UTF-8 support (./
configure --disable-utf-8). Unfortunately the 0.11 branch of elinks is not 
UTF-8 ready.

There is no easy way to backport UTF-8 support from rawhide. To work around 
this you can simply set "7-bit ASCII" character set from menu and links will be
displayed properly.

Solution for that issue is not easy. Simple backport is not possible. As workaround you can change character set to 7-bit ASCII.
