it does not use them in xterm. If I try my w3m to show the page in xterm or
on console, it uses a character which is like minus sign, but longer. If
I run it with -no-graph, it uses minus sign to display <HR>. If I set
w3m-command-arguments to "-no-graph", nothing happens and \212 are still
used. Should this happen?

If it helps - I have these customized variables saved which are connected
with w3m:

 '(w3m-display-inline-image t)
 '(w3m-file-name-coding-system (quote iso-8859-2))
 '(w3m-home-page "http://localhost:8080/";)
 '(w3m-input-coding-system (quote iso-8859-2))
 '(w3m-output-coding-system (quote iso-8859-2))

But even without them, the behavior is the same.q

My system (SuSE Linux 7.2) contains w3m and w3mj which is compiled with
Japanese support. I use w3m which does not use 2-byte characters. But
I also compiled it from source and it shows the same problem.

Well, if I could read Japanese, I already can read everything in this group
perfectly - I have all intlfonts installed and can see all these paintings
on my display ;-)

Thank for your help.
