Ever look in the registry or win.ini?  Win95 doesn't actually use LFN's
itself.  It is too stupid :-(

Look at it as a limitation to the method.  It is doing exactly what you
asked.  Lynx is not DDE enhanced so it just looks at the filename WIn95
gives it and goes.  Anyone know DDE programming?

I will test that.  I had fixed it, but it broke something else so I fixed
that.  You know how it goes.

Whooooa.  What exactly are you trying to edit?  I believe you are trying
to do something I don't.  Edit works for me in writing an email.
