techsoup?

Hi all,
I am a member of meetup.
www.meetup.org
they have what they consider to be a low graphics structure, a m., where 
lynx is intended to function fully.
granted they are using an older edition for the testing.

When sending a comment or a reply to a comment, sometimes the field 
produces a bad html error, although they believe hitting return will post 
the comment.
the explanation is that the coding is a different edition of html and that 
I should use something in lynx called tech soup, to send my replies.
what is techsoup, and is their understanding correct?
Thanks,
Karen

[wishlist] lynx should ask you to confirm when you want to leave a form page.

Hello,
This is a 'wishlist' bug from Debian bug tracking system:
see: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=393526

Lynx should ask you to confirm when you want to leave a form page, to avoid 'data loss'.

Thank you

Change display of a unicode character

Hi all.

Is there a way to change the rendering of a unicode character
in a non-unicode terminal?
(E.g. hairsp = \u200a is dropped, but should better be rendered
as a normal space, at least for some documents in the context of
screen readers.)

I am looking for a solution at lynx' invocation time or
at lynx' build time.

Thanks for your time.
Sven

Re: help - download only the text of a domain

Coskun Akinalp dixit:

Not a good idea. Help can only be given if the request is not falsified.

>Sorry. Can you try www.sh-computer.com.

Just lynx -dump http://www.sh-computer.com/node/1 then.

HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden when starting Lynx

Hi,

I have been using lynx in Debian and Ubuntu for some time, but for some reason I am getting now in both installation an "Alert! HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden" message when I start Lynx instead of the Lynx welcome page. The message won't appear for other sites that I often use, only the welcome page.

I am not sure if it's related to any update in GNU Linux or Debian, or if it's related to my UTF-8 enconding.

I am using the versions that come with the distros, 2.8.8pre.4 on Ubuntu and I don't remember on Debian.

Thank you in advance for any hint or help.

Reporting Security Bugs

Although the bug I'm thinking of is not one I've encountered, I can't 
find anything on the web about how to report security vulnerabilities, 
e.g. possible buffer overruns, in Lynx.  Am I missing something.  If so, 
some search engine optimisation may be called for.

Most open source projects prefer such issues to be reported confidentially.
