Hi to all,

I am a very long time lynx happy user. I started before 2006.

I would take this occasion to voice a feature request:

When using the equal key (=), the URL after "Action:" of this page
titled "Information about the current document" can be, when too long
to fit, wrapped respecting the margins. This is unfortunate because it
is not easy to select that URL with a mouse or with other standard
copy-paste behaviors.

If the margins were not respected in that URL, i.e. if there was no
space at end and beginning of lines where the URL wraps, it would be a
good enhancement to my personnal experience.

Each time I want to refer the URL to someone, I have to open an editor
to delete the whites spaces contained in the mouse buffer. I do that a
dozen time a day.

It would be very nice from you.
