you can usually get round the problem by extracting the URL from the HTML:
it helps if you are running Screen, which allows simple cut'n'paste;
you enter `g' , then the extracted URL (be careful to get it exactly right):
you may need to cut'n'paste more than once to copy the whole thing.

it's a pity no-one has found the time to program Lynx to look for such URLs
within JS sections of HTML & offer them as ordinary links:
it would remove a major source of JS irritation for Lynx users.
