Uh, how would you/I notice this, wouldn't this require to see the
raw data not fetched by lynx to compare it with what lynx does with
it? I always trusted on lynx preserving the raw source as it is. :-/

(or I misunderstand the whole case)

a) the first part makes no sense to me. :) The columns beyond limit
were never miscolored, even at the borderline of the miscolored
lines, where the next line wouldn't be ok anymore.

b) what kind of "cell" you mean here? (or you meant "call")?
I guess I don't understand the Style-Cache concept well enough.
AFAIUnderstood, it's only relevant for moving the highlight across
links, why would that affects passive elements?!
