1: What I meant was the ability to add JUST the "extension" (I guess
    that's a fair description?), ie the .com or .fr, to each link --
    but NOT the ENTIRE address.  Just enough to give you a HINT (ie, .com
might be ambiguous)
   of what COUNTRY it is from.

2: Ok, I switched to "advanced", as you directed me to, and note 
   NO DIFFERENCE in the way links are listed.

   Even if there WERE a difference, it wouldn't be what I wanted -- JUST
   the .com or .fr or .au, etc.

   And, no, I do NOT want to \ into raw html, nor
   do I want to hit =.  I just thought that the ".fr", etc, might be
   useful to LOTS of people, and "CHEAP" in number of characters used-up
   on screen....

3. Obvously, not "important" -- just a nice-to-do-someday idea,
   adding a bit of usefulness to display of a link.  As option.

;                  with "unsubscribe lynx-dev" (without the
;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
