I understand the sentiment, but I don't agree myself.  All 'boycotting' does
is a) give lynx a bad reputation because users can't access the sites they
need or want and b) drive users off to other browsers.

If lynx developers start down that slipperly slope, then they should remove
ALL code relating to support of broken html - incorrect comments, invalid
characters, etc.  At that point, things on the list should be pretty quiet
since significantly less web sites will be able to be accessed and
significantly less users will be using it.
