  Subject: LYNX-DEV Lynx interface with other browsers

  I am presently setting up an interactive demonstration to promote Lynx
  use for community NGO's. What I want to do is have a "link" on a page
  which allows a person to access a lynx browser using Netscape as their
  access base. 
  The reason for this is that many people who are being introduced to
  the WWW here are using Public Access Terminals using Netscape. By defualt
  they are never exposed to the Lynx experince. Are there any examples of a
  Lynx interface, of this nature, on existing Lynx education application

You can put up a page with telnet URLs to public Lynx sites.  A
discussion of public Lynx sites can be found at

In Linkname: Lynx links

See Linkname: See Lynx for yourself

The problem with this is: how many of the Netscape installations
that your customers are running are prepared to handle a telnet
URL?  You really have to capture the full screen of the terminal
in text mode to show the full benefits of Lynx.
