In the user's guide discussion of lynx trying alternative URLs, the
example of 

Lynx also will attempt to create a complete URL if you include
   adequate portions of it in the startfile argument. For example:
                 wfbr          will be expanded to:     and:
     will be expanded to:

   See [45]URL Schemes Supported by Lynx for more detailed information.

is used.

However, the latest lynx ends up guessing many different extensions and then
generates an error msg saying that it is a badly formed address that fails.

I suspect we should choose some other example that is 'safe' regardless
of what extension matches...
