According to Sergius <"DAG1::SSHKARUPO">:
> Does Lynx have a way to sort news articles by thread and/or author? 

Sorry, unfortunately news reading capabilities in Lynx don't provide
such features and I don't think it's viable idea to enlarge Lynx into 
full-scale newsreader with bells and whistles as there's already 
several such programs available, although I've to admit that I wouldn't 
mind few less dramatic improvements (hiding ugly  "Status (ARTICLE 
<number>): 423 Bad article number" texts from article lists and adding 
References to followups).

> I'm running Lynx 2.8 on OpenVMS...  

If you're wanting to read news in fancier way than what Lynx provides,
I suggest you to install a dedicated news program, I know that atleast
Slrn[1] should run on VMS...

Which help page?

Ok, mailed both to you and lynx-dev.
