elinks cannot display UTF-8
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:51 EDT
elinks seems to be unable of displaying UTF-8 (it's not available in the
encoding menu at least), which is very unfortunate in a UTF-8 locale
environment like is being installed by default in RHL 8.0. It would be great if
elinks could support UTF-8.
As a workaround, set character set to iso-8859-1 (or what you would
usually use), and run
LC_ALL=your-locale_without_utf8 luit links
You get only 256 characters, but it works about as well as in RHL 7.3.

Set UTF-8 I/O on in your terminal options -- does that make the
problem go away?

In my case, at least, setting UTF-8 I/O in the terminal options does
make the problem go away.
This bug is still present on Fedora Core 2, in a no-X environment.

Makes UTF-8 I/O the default
... and now that I've learned to read, turning on UTF-8 I/O does indeed make
the problem go away.
Thanks. Patch applied in 0.9.1-2.
