That's a good suggestion.  I currently only have EXTERNAL rules for
ftp: and mailto:, so I'll try that out for http: ...

OK ... that works nicely,  The only problems I can see (beyond the
actual overhead of starting a new lynx process) are 1) it won't work
if getting to the offending page in question requires a referer from
another page on that site, and 2) if I then start following links in
the new lynx process, when and if I ever get back to the 1st lynx
process, I may well loose/overwrite any cookies that were saved when
I quit the 2nd spun-off lynx.

Ah well ... it looks like a reasonable interim solution to the problem,
until I can come up with a realtime command-toggle for the option.

Why some twits insist on _u_n_d_e_r_l_i_n_i_n_g___e_v_e_r_y_t_h_i_n_g_
on their pages is quite beyond me ... grrrrrrr ...

Thanks ...!
