I'm assuming your subject refers to Win32 ports of Lynx, rather than
Win9X; the ones I build run on NT as well.  Also, I'm not cc-ing you
since you have a nospam address (hope you're subscribed). Finally, I
presume you mean you're "able to" access it on NS/IE, rather than
"unable to".  

I looked at the ar2b.hts page, and can find no fragment called "Column"
in that page, just a lot of form buttons.  Don't think that is the
problem, though.

I can't access that page from behind my firewall with Lynx or Netscape,
so maybe something funny is happening with the address.  The HEAD of
the document I saw from outside is on Netscape/Server 2.0.  I think
that's an old version.

This is not very precise; there are no links on the page to any Lynx
exeutables.  Can you tell us where you downloaded the version you are using?

What symptoms do you see with Lynx/Win32?  Does it never show a page, does
it show part of a page, ...?
