Fair enough! I ask there a 'Lynx-user' group, so that I can
quit disturbing _this_ list? If it was up to me only, I'd quit using Lynx
in favor of 'Links' and/or 'w3m'. However, I'm developing a multi-page
HTML document (docs) and am adamant that it will be 'text-based browser'
friendly. I'm getting great page-renderings is IE4+, Netscape, Links and
w3m -- but some of what works in the aforesaid browsers, doesn't in Lynx.
This is a _major_ PITA, and makes it extremely difficult to produce
a document that will be friendly to Lynx AND the rest of the text-based
and graphical browsers --- especially those HTML tags for which Lynx only
has half-hearted support.

Sooo....maybe there are work-arounds. That's why I'm asking about a
Lynx-users group.
