Too many web pages have links like
"You should be reading this page
with [Netscape 2 or 3
(which were new
when I first wrote this!)
or Microsoft Internet Explorer
or whatever feature-
Also, many sites use imagemaps -- those fancy button bars or navigational pictures, displayed as a single image, which let you click in different spots to go to different places. They look wonderful and polished on a graphical browser. The problem is that some sites don't provide alternative means of navigating around the web site. Not everyone uses a browser that supports graphics, and imagemaps come out as a useless single [IMAGE] or [ISMAP] in a text-based browser.
There are many possible reasons why someone would use a "lesser" web browser!
Imagine a "public" library that lent books only to people driving Lamborghinis or Lotus Esprits. An inaccessible web site is just as bogus.
You create a web site because you have something to say (or sell!).
People will be interested regardless of which browser they drive.
(Even if your web site deals with inherently graphical material like
art or photography, remember that people using text-based browsers
can generally download and save the image files.)
I have some specific suggestions you can read.
The Lynx logo is from an original drawing by Jordan Greywolf, based on the "Lynx" character by Conrad Wong.
