First of all, even though I know virtually nothing about the internals of
lynx, just from reading this list for a long time, I think it'll probably
be sooner that we see some *other* text mode browser that has JavaScript
support than lynx..  (just to give my biases or whatever you want to call
it up front..)  I already use links as my launch-from-pine browser.

But can't any of this DOM be "faked", or rather generated on the fly, 
while the text is being parsed?

At least in my case, it seems to be more the "submit button then goes to
a link" kind of JavaScript uses that I run into.
