the file has a name, but it's not readily available,
even if you use your own tmp directory;
it's a deficiency which should be easily correctable,
if it can be included from the printer page.

that's similar to KED's suggestion last month.

so far, no-one has responded to my (3), which is the most serious:
Lynx crashes if you include  2  %s's  in your EXTERNAL definition.
see my message 000114 for details.
surely Lynx should NEVER just crash ... (frown)?
