think of w3m. which runs on framebuffer, so ,fbterm is useless here.
But w3m uses framebuffer to draw pictures, not characters.
So, if you want nice output, enable UNICODE font in kernel will be the
best way rather than hacking into the w3m code.
if you hack one w3m ,there will be another one that need this kinds of hack ....
implement it in kernel was/is/will be the best choice.
