Lynx does have this feature as a patch, but the only catch is that it is
only for qualified recipients via Lynx links.  That has something to do
with US export laws, but I don't support this theory since US versions of
ARJ, JAR, and Netscape/IE all come with 'forbidden encryptions', but their
primary sites don't block those files from the foreign users, and none of
involved parties have been sued so far.  (BTW, https issue doesn't have to
do with Win 98 court case.)

BTW, what do I need to become a qualified https patch recipient?  LL
doesn't say much on this.
