I don't think that's the problem.  They use an IMG in place
of link text, and the '*' key just gets the IMG url
(.../high_bidders.gif), not the url of the bidders list.
The link he wants is available as a "hidden link" on the
'L'inks page.  Using the "-hiddenlinks=merge" commandline
switch with links numbered gets a number assigned to the
hidden link, making it much easier to find on the 'L'inks
page (the urls are pretty cryptic).

Note 1 - I think "-hiddenlinks" is documented in the man
page, but not in lynx_help.  Patch forthcoming.

Note 2 - I can't, off-hand, think of any way of making hidden
links selectable on the page itself, but there may be one.

Note 3 - seems to use a hefty dose of
invalid commenting.  Depending on your configuration, you
may need to try one of lynx's "forgiving" settings to see
the whole page.  See the 'K'eymap page for the
comment-parsing options.  A backtick ("`") works for me.
