Why should you be either?

I can't think of any other sites that actually give *useful workaround
information*.  If they don't want to support a non-frames version, that's
their choice..  But I am *GLAD* they give tell you how to find the main frame!
(Though from what I remember checking out the site long ago, even in a GUI
browser there isn't much useful there.)

BTW, a long time ago I mentioned an invalid cookie on wellsfargo's site
(that only showed up via lynx -- if there's a way to make IE 4.5 or even
newer show invalid cookies, tell me, and it may raise the priority of the
issue).  Sending in to the generic support address was never useful.
However, I finally simply emailed address@hidden about it..
While I wasn't able to give more specific info (even resizing my GUI terminal
emulator window wider here at work, lynx cut off the message at 80 cols)
about the invalid cookie, the person who answered the email said they would
try to fix it at some point in the future (months).

I'd call that a bit of a success story..
