Hi all, i'm trying Lynx to test my web site for accessibity.
It seems that Lynx ignores the <BUTTON> html tag, ie, it renders the button
as [BUTTON], but it is not possible to click it.

Are you sure.  It used to work.  The real problems with button are:

- it is broken in some versions of IE (the reason I know it worke is that I first tested in in Lynx, even though it was targetted at an IE only demo page. It fails to send one of name or value in earlier versions of IE.

- there is no good provision for providing text only fallback content.

These problems basically mean that you should not use in in accessible pages.

that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
