Lynx Viewer

This service allows web authors to see what their pages will look like (sort of) when viewed with Lynx, a text-mode web browser.

Note: for best results, you should download a copy of Lynx itself and run it locally on your own machine, rather than use this service, if you can. That will also let you view pages on your internal network that my machine can't get to.

You may put the "Lynx Inspected" icon on your page if you wish. It was donated to me for this purpose. You may have that icon be a link back here if you wish, also.

Enter the URL you want to view:

Note: The version of Lynx I'm using is 2.8.4rel.1, as of Dev 14 2003. If you notice any odd renderings (except for the underlined blanks at the beginnings of lines; that's OK), let me know.

|- Lynx uses an 80-column output.  Make sure your browser window is this wide -|
----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6----+----7----+----8
