I think we are talking about the same line, but our interpretation of it
is quite different.  I do not consider it "bogus."  To me it serves the
purpose of *separating*, i.e., making distinct, the <TITLE> and <BODY>.
This is particularly important for documents which fit onto a single
screen since these documents do not have a "(px of y)" appended.  Even
with documents that are more than one "page" long, I find the line
"comforting" since it gets me oriented at the top of the document.

My "view" of Lynx is a single, 24-line screen presented by my terminal
emulator.  I don't see any "frames."  Perhaps the title line needs to have
the same attributes as the status line?  Anyway, in this as with some other
of your modifications you assume that everyone sees Lynx the same as you do.

Although I appear to be the rare minority, I can't understand the necessity
of putting such things into the general code base, ifdefed or otherwise.
Do you all need an example?  Interested parties, grep the source for
"EXP_JAPANESE_SPACE" and "FIX_JAPANESE_SPACES."  Don't you find it a bit
stupid to have all that ifdefing spaghetti?  For what?  Why not back the
rubbish out if you have no idea what it's for anyway?  Honestly it's an
embarrassment since I'm literally the only one in the world using it.
Nothing I couldn't maintain myself.
