Regardless, it seems weird that Lynx is able to display an XHTML page
but not view its source code.  If anything, you'd expect the opposite to
be true.

And on a related note, why does it send text/css as one of the accept
types.  It doesn't support CSS.  Though, it would make sense if Lynx
themes were based on CSS instead of their own stylesheet format.  That
would basically be killing two birds with one stone.
