Thanks, Doug.  And that's good because that means the cache mechanism
has been in Lynx all along.  Seems to me (that doesn't mean much) that
really all Lynx needs is a few more "smarts" in remembering what it
has and what to do with what it has; or did Bela already say that.

Hmm.  I'm still worried though, because "print" is most certainly

From my uneducated way of looking at what people seem to want, it seems
that Lynx should "download" everything as a binary and write it to either
memory or disk (user decides which).  Once Lynx's got (or, now with the
partial display implementation, getting) something, it can then decide
what to do with it initially and throughout the session, and decide when
to erase it.
