:) You really want to use wget, not lynx.

Yes, I know. But my problem is that I need to write a script that will
download a specific file. Although wget may be the right tool to do the
job I feel it's better to assume that lynx is installed in the system than
wget (after all in my system wget is not installed). So I decided that I
would use lynx instead to do this job.

:) -source is better than -dump, but wget is really the only suitable
:) tool for downloading exact copies of files from the command line.
:) -dump is intended to save rendered HTML, not raw files.

I'll try -source then. Thanks a lot!
