Yes, a lot of JavaScript'ed links call URLs which are actually
between the <SCRIPT> elements [well, not URLs exactly, but relative
paths].  Converting the link itself would be tricky, but could
Lynx instead look into the script for references and convert these
to links?  They would generally appear at the top of the page,
since most scripts are in the <HEAD>.

For example, New Array() variables almost always point to other
documents [often, these would waste time on image rollover references,
but it would pull a lot of useful URLs from scripts too].  Could
it handle/generate these links the same way it does with image
