Lynx actually sends a valid user agent, but some stupid sites block
Lynx. :-/ You can set the user agent string in the options, changing Lynx
to something like |_yn>< will probably make it pass. Or just copy the UA
used by Firefox or Konqueror. ;-) But you should also complain to the
site's webmaster about the stupid UA blocking.
