You can't.  It's a JavaScript thing, and you need a browser that supports

You can do several things to help the effort:

1) Politely complain to the site and ask them to provide a non-JavaScript
version of the page

2) Help add support to JavaScript to Lynx (a huge effort) or some other
text-based browser such as w3m (I don't know if it's any more feasible

You could also just use one of the browsers that supports JavaScript such
as IE or Netscape.
