        What a confusing message!

        First I don't see what terminal line wrapping ("natural" or
        otherwise) has to do with message length.  Obviously you
        can, and did, insert some line feeds of your own.

        I don't think Lynx is even close to the "most obscure."
        While I've see quite a bit of ignorance of the access
        issues related to making HTML pages "lynx clean" I've
        seen very few web masters that hadn't heard of it.

        In other words Lynx is known to be out there; even if it
        doesn't get the respect that we feel it deserves.

        Lynx is not a Linux specific phenonmenon.  Indeed we
        Linux users have the rare advantage of Netscape support
        for our particular OS choice -- which which is not 
        enjoyed by many of the other Unix variants in the world.

        I'd guess that Grail (a Python based web browser) or
        TkWWW (a TCL/Tk based one) would be much better contenders
        in the "most obscure" category.
