Hi Thomas,

Here is a problem reported by one of my friends (blind lynx user).
It is the first time I see something like this and it is a real problem
for screen readers that use colors to decide their behaviour

just found a Web page where Lynx/2 changes the color of the help lines
the bottom of the screen.
Normal behavior is that the color on the help line (this is usually
25) is the same as the one found at row 1, last column; the top right
Now on the following Web page
the color on the help line changes.
When open this Web page all is fine. Color on help line is the same as
top right corner.
Lynx tells on the title line that we are on page 1 of 5 - (p1 of 5).
Then we read through the page and you press "space bar" to go to page
Again press Space bar to move to the next page. When reaching page 4 of
the color on the help line changes.
This is very strange. The result of this behavior is that the profile
a wrong status line and thinks that we are on an entry field.
However, this is wrong.

Can you try the about URL and let me know if you find the same problem?
