[Lynx-dev] Cursor-left and anchors

annoying behaviour: (assume 80x24 terminal for this example)

$ lynx
g <enter>
activate one of the links, such as [143]mksh spell

And you're up at #otheros again, instead of the page after it.

I consider this an annoying usability bug.

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
