aspects of braille music code. The BrailleM e-mail list is designed to

and formats. BrailleM covers any and all subjects related to braille music,
ranging from such practical questions as where to find braille music teaching

Lynx-Dev Discussion, List Lynx-dev is a majordomo mailing
list used by developers and interested users as a forum to discuss the
further development of the Lynx World Wide Web browser. Topic issues include
fixing known bugs, porting Lynx to various systems, and increasing the
usability of Lynx.

send E-mail to email@example.com, with only the following request in
the body of your message SUBSCRIBE LYNX-DEV address where inclusion of
your email address is optional if it can be obtained, correctly, from the
mail headers of your subscription request. If you have problems with majordomo
not responding to your requests,
send email to the
list owner firstname.lastname@example.org. Please, DO NOT send them to email@example.com
as they will be distributed to everyone on the list and will clutter up
Lynx Links, the newsletter for the discerning Lynx user.
In response to all the poorly implemented frames, unusable imagemaps, ill-conceived
tables, slow-loading graphics-heavy sites, and [SUBMIT] buttons that you
discover are undefined to Lynx only after spending fifteen minutes filling
out the form, we have created Lynx Links. The sites reviewed in this digest
are, naturally, Lynx-friendly. But this does not render them useless to
users of those other browsers. They are, in fact, some of the best sites
they have found on the net, and they highly recommend them to all surfers,
not just Lynx users. They feature an eclectic mix of sites, reflecting
the interests of the staff. But then, our staff consists of regular
folks who surf around just like you, so we're sure you'll find at least
one bookmark-worthy gem in each digest.
