Uah, I like it but it's just too long.
I suggest to skip the date. Besides, AM/PM is as dead
as imperial units.

Yes, but XHTML helps Lynx to display stuff too because
it's well-formed XML => all tags are closed => no guess game.

Je ne parle pa fran?ais. I assume you want to RTFM?

Each TCP segment which comes in, delivering a handful
of HTML source to lynx, causes it to display another
partial line of the page you're viewing, or so.
Nice if you switch it on, if you ask me ;)

Yesterday I noticed that it doesn't work correctly
in an 113x42 xterm, only in the 80x24 console. In
the larger xterm, it's offset (but flips back correctly
if I go to the (incorrect) position it set me when
switching to source).
