I support your proposition and I suggest also removing the TITLE from the
Print, Download and Options(forms) menus, and from the List, History and
Visited Links pages. Those can't be bookmarked anyway. Well, the
Options(forms) menu can be bookmarked but I think it's just something that
was forgotten when it was created. By the way, when we quit the
Options(forms) menu, the previous page is always reloaded even if nothing
was chaged. That's annoying.

What about telling them to read the help files, which are one keystroke
from them? The Download and Print options are explained there.

I was giving it just as an example of a language that doesn't necessarily
use just an "s" for plural forms, but it's possible to have a Latin version
of Lynx. Have you never seen comics in Latin? There are many in Europe.
