Ok, here's another one.

On the main page,, there is text that talks
about the FAQ.

I originally complained that they should put a link to the FAQ there
rather than links hidden in lower pages.

But it really IS a link to the FAQ.  It just doesn't show up as a link
in Lynx.

It does show up as a link in iCab (, the only cool GUI browser I've
used), links, and w3m, though with w3m, not all of the "link text" (the whole
paragraph) is hilighted.
