I don't know what exact points should be tested.  Basically, all that
works with standard Lynx should still work.  Look at Title line (to line
on screen), text in ALT attributes, and titles in bookmark files, and on
the auxiliary pages Lynx creates for history list, '=', 'V', 'l' etc.

Those new README.* and CHANGES.* files etc. of course don't have to stay
there forever.  They could be moved or removed later.  Some things are
more for my benefit than to be useful for others.  But I think of these 
packages only as intermediate stages.

I started a file, for changes that are worth keeping a log of,
in the style Fote uses for CHANGES.  That might eventually become the new
CHANGES file.  I will put it in a new package (with the latest BUGFIX and
some changes from Wayne and me to make the chartrans code compile on

Well whoever doesn't like should change it before compiling (back to "2.7"
or whatever).
