        The "got back in" was referring to some Email I got after reporting
this problem saying that it was corrected back into some new release. My memory
is failing there but what I am sure of, is that I never got a chance to debug
Lynx since ... and just got back to it now with all of what I said I would test
(slang, color, etc ...). So, it might very well be that the "got back in" was
out of faith and disconnected from reallity :)  ...

        Agreed. I just wanted to know if it is ever going to be re-supported or
not or if there was any plans to do so. If not, software support I do here
includes warning people of what was working before, and what they have to do
now to get the same functionality. In other words, I wanted to be sure that I
can reliably say "the following scheme will no longer works. Please use the
correct ///Logical/file.html syntax instead" ... and my job is done. What is
not good is to have a feature in, then out, then in again etc ... (users get
confused and my life becomes miserable).

        So let's say : leave it as is  is fine with me.
