If so it is not far off. Eveyrhting works except for MS telent's scrolling 
bogosity, which breaks vi (sceen scrolls down 1 line autoamgically when you 
enter a command). lynx, emacs, etx suffer the same effect only rather the 
effect is worse. Apparently just using the bottom line is sufficient to cause 
the bogosity to hit your program.

When i resi\e the window to a narrow widtsh the lines wrap and this causes 
incorrect display. If I make the dsiplay wider lynx fails to make use of the 
extra width. I think lynx really needs to re-render the page in response to
