Lynx doesn't interpret JavaScript - that's a lot of code that no one's
developed (for Lynx of course).

Not interpret. Just display as if content-type were text/plain.

Character sets are a different matter - some interpretations that we
might change (see some recent discussion of BIG5).

Again, I don't care about interpretation; I just want it to display as plain text.

Is there some setting I can adjust?
