This webpage displays fine for me in konqueror in current sid. The problem
with the Rio site is that they don't use the codes they use the direct
extended ascii characters which don't even show up in console correctly.
This is also against the HTML spec as shown on w3c.org validator site.

For reference I am using en_US.UTF-8 locale, with lots of fonts. I am
also running XFree86 4.3 exp debs since 4.2 does not work with my video
card. I may end up trying to install the ATI binary only drivers so I
can run 4.2 to see if I can reproduce it on 4.2 as well.

Someone said commenting out LD_BIND_NOW may make it work. I am not sure
why it isn't a problem for everyone though.
