First of all I presume you're talking about multibyte characters
because ASCII is also a subset of unicode (and there are other
single-byte characters besides the ASCII characters).
* What version of w3m is this?
* What platform is it running on?
* What are the language & locale settings?
It seems to be a user problem and not a w3m problem, I was able to
correctly save one, two, three and four byte characters on my
MediaWiki installation using w3m/0.5.1+cvs-1.938 and the en_US.utf8
locale using a utf8 xterm, however running the browser with a
non-unicode locale (such as C) results in it saving incorrect
