I, uh...  WTF dude, that was me.  That was me, very
enthusiastically messing around in ResEdit.  It was fun, but in
retrospect not very productive [I thought it was a *great* idea
at the time].  The site must have lingered a while, because I
don't remember doing anything with it after 2002.

Just add this to your DOWNLOADER definitions in lynx.cfg ;

DOWNLOADER:Load Internally:OlG1:TRUE

Then, after (D)ownloading a file, the option to `Load Internally'
will be presented to you.

But if your Powerbook is running MacOS X, you should be able to
find a much more recent version of Lynx built for OSX, since the
underlying system is mostly BSD UNIX.  These two look promising;
