Sorry, for my delay to answer your mail.

If I remember me right, it's not gettext's job to manage this special
case; but I may be wrong.  Isn't there a special locale?  Perhaps,
Ulrich Drepper will comment this issue.

|   and PUTS() in the WWW library code. All seem functional with the gettext
|   hooks.
|   I tested a local Usenet post with the language set to "it," and some but
|   not all prompts were translated. The it.po file has a few empty messages
|   because I had no Italian strings. Other messages may be sent from the
|   NNTP server, not to mention "From" and "Subject" probably need to be
|   left alone.

Yes, you've to be careful not to "tag" these keywords.

May I ask you to submit the message catalog "lynx.pot" to the "Free
Translation Project" <address@hidden>?  You'll quickly see
new l10n message files:
