"Print" a page to file and then edit it with notepad. Its full of

I have since noticed that not all printers have problems with unix
style line feeds.

My ancient dot-matrix had no problem with processing the output from -

PRINTER:Direct to local printer:print "%s":TRUE

 - but the laserjet at work made a big mess similar to what's seen in

; To UNSUBSCRIBE:  Send a mail message to address@hidden
;                  with "unsubscribe lynx-dev" (without the
;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
