One other solution would be to generate a page whose links are usable
with lynx, that is, do not require Javascript.
Is it possilbe in lynx to pass a page that has just been retrieved to an
external program that would preprocess it, and then render the output
of this program. More precisely, things would work as follows:

1. lynx retrieves page P at URL U
2. lynx calls script S, with U as its first arguemnt and P on its
standard input.
3. lynx reads a new page P' on the standard output of S.
4. lynx renders P' rather than P.

Is it possible to do such a thing with lynx ?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion,
