This was something I sent to CNN about their
news-site, which used javascript on some
pages (which of course I couldn't get to), and
I sent also to lynx-dev, just so you'd know
that CNN was yet another javascript-baddie.

Except that I didn't do it via cc, but by a 2nd
item on the to-line.  Sorry -- made me look
like an idiot (which I maybe was, for doing
it that way! :-)
