I take that back.  They don't seem to do it anymore.

For awhile I had a filtering proxy running on my local machine.  Among
other things, I told it to always use "Lynx/2.8.2 libwww-FM/2.14" as the
User Agent header, even if I was using Netscape or IE. 

Altavista and Yahoo would alway give me simplified versions of their
pages--usually more focused toward searching than portals.
It looks like Altavista is still doing so.
