LYNX-DEV updating

I have put a draft revision for the page which appears at up on my site at .

This should not be installed before the address@hidden
auto-responder is working.  In addition there are various
judgement calls in this rewrite on which I would like to invite


The news banner about the DJGPP port has been removed.
     - I regard this as of less interest to readers at large
          than the Win32 version at this time, which is
          also still "alpha."
     - Still trying to keep this page short and sweet
          i.e. 80X24

The "Lynx friendly" decoration has been suppressed.  
     - This may be a generational issue.  I find the animation
        irritating.  I think that people use Lynx in part because it pays
        attention _to you_, and is not squirming on your computer screen
        demanding that you pay attention to it.  I don't think we
        communicate the attractions of Lynx to potential users with a
        blinking GIF like this.

Although the flow-through from the address@hidden is to
        Lynx-dev, I have removed the "read the archives" from this page.
        I still mean that there should be leads to the archives for those
        that pursue things from the pages at Lynx links and elsewhere.

I think that the new list hits the high spots.  Whaddya think?
