Dear Lynx developers,

Here is a bug from the Debian Bugs system,

He says that the page renders wrong when forms and links are numbered.
The page is invalid HTML, by the way.

This script creates a page with the same format mentioned in the 
original report. Try 55 as the argument.


rm test-68542.html

for i in $( seq "$1" ); do

cat >>test-68542.html  <<EOF

with a comma will find files containing either one.  Separating them

Package: lynx   
Version: 2.8.1-3
Severity: normal

It looks like it might be a lynx rendering bug, but I don't know the
renderer or HTML well enough to know for sure. i seem to only see it
happen on on the "search with Glimpse" section
at the bottom of the page. The text entry box renders fine when "form
fields are numbered" is disabled and only "links are numbered" is

I do not know of any other sites where this is a problem, so it may be
a bug at instead.
