Thanks; AFAICT, my requirements cannot be met by that.

The newsletters I'm thinking about typically have links such

| Header_Link_A
| Header_Link_B

| Item_1_Link_A   Item_1_Link_B   Item_1_Link_C

| Item_2_Link_A   Item_2_Link_B   Item_2_Link_C

| Item_3_Link_A   Item_3_Link_B   Item_3_Link_C

| […]

| Footer_Link_A
| Footer_Link_B
| Footer_Link_C

I want to iterate (only) over Item_1_Link_B, Item_2_Link_B,
Item_3_Link_B, etc.

*But* your pointer gave me the idea that I could iterate
over shr's buttons like gnus-collect-urls does, test if
their URLs match Item_x_Link_B's typical pattern and then
offer to browse them.  This would require that
Item_x_Link_B's pattern is (relatively) stable; I have to
check whether that will work reasonably well.  Thanks!
