Alright, I found the source file and had a good look through it. It's a
huge file, by the way.

Perhaps you might be so kind as to tell me where I have to look (and
maybe even what I have to change).

Thanks again,

The "-source" option (rather than "-dump") extracts the html content of
the page - that would leave hyperlinks intact.  But that isn't what you
want.  You can suppress the references by adjusting the lynx.cfg, but
for making a formatted output with active links, you'll have to modify
