Man, am I confused.

Are you saying that for the L-page to show actual addresses,
that you must first FOLLOW the links?

That's sure not my experience!

In fact, my main USE for the L-page is to DECIDE what
if any links I want to follow -- by looking at the
addresses (and titles if they were there too --
which unfortunately they aren't -- lynx shows only
one of them (my main complaint about the L-page (when
working as it should!))) -- eg to see if a whole
bunch of sequential are merely ....#foo addrs into the SAME


Please explain what you mean about having to follow the
link first, so that lynx can "know" the address.  
I mean, how can lynx go somewhere unless it ALREADY
knows the address?

Confused (as usual)
