lynx-dev Google Search Engine

        I've been using Google as my mane search engine for some time now.
Lately they have been messing with their page layout. The last change has
included making the advanced search page script based. This page is required
now to get at some options previously available elsewhere. For some reason
Lynx renders this page as an almost complete blank. It seems lines like:
<!------Advanced Search--------> or
<!------Page-Specific Search-------->
cause Lynx ignore everything after. Removing these makes the otherwise
normal (if poorly formed from a Lynx perspective) html works fine. 
Also if one edits the page like the following and puts it in, say your home
directory, Google's Advanced search is again quite advanced.
Can anyone explain this?
