dev.16 has 2 bugs i will attempt to describe: is my public library.
Type in the word lynx in the search entry on this page and press 
the search link.
The results are the books with lynx in their title.
Select the link that represents the title of the first book.
This brings you to the card catalog info.

Bug 1. If you then select reserve,
you get taken to a page with a refresh.  When I use netscape, this
refresh results in a page where I enter my library patron info to reserve
the book.  With lynx however, I get no where - lynx has lost part of
the refresh url.  I suspect a buffer overflow or something.

Bug 2. To look at what lynx does, back up, move the cursor to the
reserve button, but turn on tracing before pressing the link.
On my sparc solaris 2.6 version of lynx, I get a crash with this stack
