Uh. It was my first bit of C after the "hello world" program. :-)

Lynx sometimes says in the trace log: 
Found </B> when expecting </A>. </A> assumed

I meant this by the "assuming".

It should rather be FROM neither A. Too many ANDs, ORs and NOTs for me.

It looks so. :-)

Well, my idea was - don't lose <A> or <FORM>, lose some other tags, that
are less imporatant. Of course, these 'less important' tags could make a
mess in the rest of the document.. But links and forms will work, or at
least work better than now. I don't know if this is the right way to solve
the problem, either.. I wonder how other browsers do it.
