Dear Lynx:

Can a text-based web browser like Lynx really be used in 2004 with web
sites powered by Javascript, XML, ASP and the like ?  A local freenet that
I have an account with (and have had for 9 years) uses Lynx as it's web
browser and I do like it but Lynx doesn't run all web sites that I try to
hit with it. 

But I do not miss the popups, viruses, etc. that I get with IE.  But can
Lynx be updated or something to make it run current websites ?  I remember
a few years ago some websites had a 'text only' link so you could see
their site in a text-only mode.  I wish more did this.

Thank you very much.
