Well, I don't currently have the lynx version in there, but it's 
amazing that people are arguing against being able to *use* web sites.

Lynx already has some "work with bad html" features.  With the attitude
about user-agent given here by some others, all of those should be ripped
out to further limit the amount of web pages that work with lynx.

With regard to lynx, I am mostly a *user*.  I want the browser to work with
the same pages that other browsers work with.  If that means spoofing a
user agent string to get into several sites, I do that.

I run with the standard user agent most of the time, but have aliases set
up to use a mozilla user agent for those commercial sites that I know I
need to use it with.

That is just being realistic.
