At least we seem to be mostly doing tweaks and not real bugs at this
point. :)  Fote, next time you're poking in the code, could you fix
something that was brought up once before, but has never been fixed..  When
you print a rendered page to a file, lynx will change .html to .txt, but
if the file was originally .htm, it stays the same instead of changing to
.txt.  I would do it myself, but I don't have a lot of time to poke around
in the code even during Spring Break.  I have a program to do, a test to
study for, a paper to write, and some problems to do.  Some Spring Break,
huh? ;)
