Again, I'll be the first person to try this stuff out (when there's a
really usable version)..

But don't sites that use JavaScript *also* often use frames?  And the
JavaScript only deals with certain frames?

So it seems that ANOTHER stumbling block would be Lynx's "interesting"
support of frames.  (Basically, each frame is a separate web page, you do
NOT see them all together as intended by the designer.)

It _really_ seems to me that adding Javascript to a text-based browser would
basically need to start with a more full-featured text browser in the
first place.
