-      <para>In text mode, unpatched <application>Links</application> cannot be
-      configured to use UTF-8 or other multibyte encodings for the terminal
-      input/output. This limitation renders <application>Links</application>
-      useless as a text-based browser in multibyte locales. See general
-      discussion of this type of issue in the

-
-      <para>The patch adds the <quote>UTF-8 I/O</quote> configuration option.
-      With this option enabled, <application>Links</application> first renders
-      the page using an 8-bit character set configured by the user, and then
-      converts from this character set to UTF-8. The opposite conversion is
-      applied to user input. This approach works if there is an 8-bit character
-      set that contains all the characters that the user considers to be
-      important. Such character set does not exist, e.g., for Chinese
-      hieroglyphs, or when it is required to display both Cyrillic and Greek
-      characters.</para>

-      correctly even in UTF-8 locales, if all characters exist in the built-in
-      font used by <application>Links</application>. This font contains
-      Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement (without superscripts and vulgar
-      fractions), Latin Extended-A, Latin Extended-B (partially), Greek,
-      Cyrillic and Hebrew characters. Form submission in non-ISO-8859-1
-      locales is handled correctly when running in X11-based graphical mode.
-      Input handlers for other graphics drivers (fb, directfb, svgalib) either
-      misinterpret non-ASCII characters, or don't allow them
-      at all.</para>
