Opera 6.02 : no problem with  w.l.o/subgroups/  & its  3  subdirs.
Konqueror 2.2.2 : ditto.
Linux 2-8-5dev6 : initial problem: 'download' is hidden by a 'jpg';
  further obstructions due to frames & tables (negotiable);
  Japanese sub-site doesn't display, as it contains both languages
  (i would have to 'download' it or reconfigure Lynx:
  Opera shows Japanese nicely, Konqueror adequately).
NB all this is with Opera 6 : Opera 5 had many deficiencies.

i have just been using Lynx to browse & grab articles
from Linux Journal/Magazine/Gazette, for which it is excellent,
provided you remember to do  \  to get the source first ... (ouch!)
