To make webmasters fix their pages to work with Lynx just makes
you heave a big sigh doesn't it..

You are right actually, but it does strip the space and you can
render it by using '\' - but of course this behaviour is also
wrong albeit a little better than Lynx'.

The poster wrote to me and suggested that Lynx had changed its
behaviour somewhere in the later development versions since the
ebay pages had always worked for him with Lynx previously and
so to check his assertion I installed version 2.8.3 (I really
love those encaps) and tried again and lo and behold - it

So it is a "bug" (or removed fault tolerance ) which has been
introduced into Lynx since version 2.8.3.

Hope this narrows down the problem somewhat.
