I don't think that's the case - the JavaScript is used for fancy
mouseover effects and isn't directly relevant to actually clicking
the menu.  (I'm assuming that mouseover highlights the button and
doesn't do other stuff like bringing up a sub-menu.  Of course you
can do pure-CSS sub-menus, but they wouldn't work on Lynx either.)

The issue is that the menu uses a styled <div> with no content; it's
the styling that generates the clickable button, but Lynx doesn't do
styling so there's nothing there to select.

What you want between <a> and </a> is probably something like

<span style="display:none">Impressum</span>

which will display on non-CSS browsers such as Lynx.
