Interesting: I have

  Password for anonymous ftp       : 
  Preferred media type             : [30][(1)__Accept lynx's internal types]    
  Preferred encoding               : [31][(6)__All_____]                        

(note that #29 *still* does not account for the width of the link number)
and this:

/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/lynx/userdefs.h:#define XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND "xloadimage 
-quiet %s"

Images work just fine for me. (I do have trouble with the encoding with
some (very rare) sites, although I don’t remember which ones because
these are not ones I frequent. Either gzip or deflate were broken with
one, and for one I had to set it to none.)

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
