Good point... I've tried using ^V to switch between the two -- no joy!
My problem is fairly simple -- Lynx seems to not respect the "width"
element for <td>. I want to display a simple 'navbar' like:

Prev                  Home                Up                      Next
Page1                                                            Page3

For the other browsers, the following works:
<table border="0" width="100%">
        <td width="25%" align="right">Prev</td>
    <td width="25%" align="center">Home</td>
    <td width="25%" align="center">Up</td>
    <td width="25%" align="right">Next</td>
        <td colspan="2" width="50%" align="right")Page1</td>    
        <td colspan="2" width="50%" align="right")Page3</td>

Shouldn't be a _big_ deal -- but it is with Lynx -- unless I'm missing
something, which is quite possible ;) Thanks for the suggestion!
