I was looking at a site, saw something incorrect in the text,
wanted to see if perhaps it was lynx that made booboo on
showing html, so did "\" to see.

Oops -- stuff truncated at screen-width ("set cols ...").

Of course, "d"ownload (and then vi) showed it correctly (the html

As I saw passing by on mailing list a day or two ago, it needs
to be wrapped (and maybe indented for easy reading, the 2nd, third,
etc lines printed for one wide line).

Why important?  Otherwise you can't trust "\" -- you are FORCED
to "d" and vi or something.

the width of the longest line is 255 in the downloaded html.
