Subject: iso-8859-1 dash gone
Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2009 02:33:02 +0800
Package: lynx-cur
Version: 2.8.7dev13-1

Lynx totally absconds with the dash here:
$ set
$ lynx -dump $@|fold -w 44|grep drums\ h|qp-encode
n 2040 drums holding 20200 L
$ lynx -source $@|fold -w 44|grep drums\ h|qp-encode
 water in 20=9640 drums holding 20=96200 L each;

Looks great in emacs-w3m (but not w3m), and midori.
