Not such a good idea. THe page should be half readable with lynx in the
first place. This is nearly always possible. The only thing that breaks
lynx is heavy table use and most of the tables ( besides the ones in
/software ) are bad enough to look bad in lynx.

We mostly need html. perl also helps (it's a good language to write site
maintenance scripts in ). Unless someone can think of a *really* good
reason to use frames/java , we won't use them.
