I did a build, and the build doesn't come out like that; it looks 
fine on my disk in the build folder.

I see, what causes it to look so bad is the <link> feature you guys have 
been talking about. There is a couple of hundred links in the <head> 
section, not displayed by browsers like mozilla. But definitely displayed
by lynx. The real manual is actually fine, further down the page; but
I hadn't even bothered to scroll down before, it just looked all screwed-up.

What's worse, is that the links don't even work. They don't have the 
yy.ffff (en.html in my case) appended to the document names such 
as ch-partitioning.

Is lynx wrong for displaying this stuff? Should I bug it?

But definitely the link syntax should be fixed - whatever this stuff
is used for won't work.
