Yes, definitely.

Exactly. That's why I proposed to use both "belt and braces" :-)
BTW: did my attachments get through the mailing-list

That's a sensible concern. What I can tell is that it works fine with
Mozilla 1.4, Netscape 4.78 and Lynx 2.8.4 on Linux. Untested with Opera,
MSIE and other browsers. Actually, with Lynx it does work, but the
browser needs a "kick" (just try it out and you'll see what I mean). But
it may just be a matter of configuring Lynx in a different way, I dunno.

For best reading please set the Courier font.
