True. Actually, a fragment makes sense for at least one other type of which I 
know: model/vrml. A
fragment is used with VRML to identify part of a VRML world in much the same 
way as with HTML. So,
you're absolutely right that the presence of a fragment does not imply 
text/html. And although
obviously, most Lynx users don't care about VRML, it would be a serious error 
for Lynx to change the
extension to/tack on an extension of ".html" for such a file. Just thought I 
would mention this.
