I replicated the behavior using lynx2.8.4dev.15.  It goes away
if I remove the "<center>" and "</center>".  I'll let one of
the HTML lawyers rule on whether it's legal to have <center>
within an anchor.  Regardless, I consider it poor error recovery
on Lynx's part not to display the "click me" text as a link.
