Pretty neat research results.  It's strange that Lynx would send "garbage."
Can you give a concrete example of some garbage?  Also, could you clarify
what "some of the html that was in that link" means?

Just curious, but do the results differ if you compile with or without
"--enable-internal-links"?  (If interested, see the "1997-11-03" entry
