I appreciate you're looking at this.  Of course my interest is to
eventually try to predict enough of the *.nsf format that I could
pass it through a filter based on the mime.type/mailcap entry in order
to formulate all links on a page to pass on to Lynx.

I'll keep trying, too.  Our network seems to be collapsing around us
again (like 5 or 6 bytes/sec [no, i did not forget the 'k']), though,
so I don't know when.

Thanks.  I did get the file, but by using MSIE.  Did you get it with Lynx?
If so, could you give me some pointers on how to wade through that stuff
to construct the necessary URLs?  The number of sites offering that kind
of Windows9? auto-download seems to be on the rise.  I have a suspicion the
sites are doing it so they don't have to have anonymous ftp on their systems.
