Thanks for the screenshot! That helps a lot to know what to look for.

Unfortunately it also means that I can say for sure that I can't
reproduce it even though I also use uxterm:

  ├─xterm -class UXTerm -title uxterm -u8
  │   └─zsh
  │       └─lynx http://radioscanningtw.jidanni.org/index.php?title=\347\211\271\346\256\212:\345\210\206\351\241\236&uselang=en
  │           └─(lynx)

See the attached screenshot for how it looks here.

So what else could make a difference?

One thing I saw in the configuration you provided was

> STARTFILE:file:/home/jidanni/wwwoffle-chunks/index.html

Since the proxy configuration usually happens via the environment
variable $http_proxy, it wasn't included in your listing.

If you use wwwoffle as proxy, can you check if it works without using
a proxy? (Feel free to remove the moreinfo tag when you reply to

Another thing I can imagine are locale settings. Here are mine:

→ env | egrep 'LANG|LC_'
