I'm not so sure the fault lies with Lynx; the fact is that the Microsoft IIS
server is returning an invalid Content-Location.  It says


when what it really means is



   The Content-Location entity-header field MAY be used to supply the
   resource location for the entity enclosed in the message when that
   entity is accessible from a location separate from the requested
   resource's URI.
   Future requests MAY specify the Content-Location URI as the request-
   URI if the desire is to identify the source of that particular

Curiously, the server doesn't return a Content-Location at all if you ask
for /index.html instead of / .
