no such string in the page i get using Lynx 2-8-5dev.6 or Galeon 1.2.6 .
i always suppress cookies with 'ne(V)er' using Lynx,
so the server refuses to admit Lynx to its program pages;
Galeon accepts the cookie & everything comes thro' smoothly.

very much out-of-date: you should use the latest version of Lynx.

Opera is very good, if you put up with the big ad in the corner.
