 Can you send me that test case (I hope it's html file) and describe these
usages. Since the day I implemented that patch I'm using lynx with it applied
(and did a lot of crawling with it) - no problems are noticed with it (can you
also send a sample lynx.cfg with  stripped comments and 'configure' options if
they matter - or prepare to sent these additional stuff on my request).

 BTW, IMO EXP_JUSTIFY_ELTS should be added (at least commented) in userdefs.h,
and/or as 'configure' option.

 And there is a very small patch missed (that I sent in the reply to the
David Woodley reply - it can be reproduced with the sed script on


- if applied, will allow justification of the html like

<center> this text won't be justified
  <p align=left> this paragraph will be justified after this tiny patch</p>
 this text won't be justified
