About the browsers: I can't tell lynx is "decent".  It's a terminal browser
that generally support HTML 3.2 but not much more.  Last time I tried
Mozilla (M14) it crashes often.  I heard that M16 isn't so bad but this is a
beta software (Actually I'm not sure if it is alpha because I see nowhere in
mozilla.org that milestones are beta).  So I think that Netscape 4.x and IE
4.0 must be supported because they are the popular browsers now.  Especially
among average beginners.
