so do i, and for those reasons i'm launching the links itself and
using it as a pager as well :)

eek? you mean adding kinda wysiwyg html editor into links?! ;-)

i guess this is a bad place where to complain.. anyway sending
mails in html only is usually in unix community considered as
a Bad Thing (tm)..
4) I want ever documented *all* options in default.c ;-)
'do it by myself', yeah :-). Maybe the best thing at
all would be to report all possible options with -help,
and insert description field into *_options structure.
It would definitively force us to document it ;-)..
If you ever dig e.g. in XaoS sources, you know what i mean :)

i really don't see any big advantage on that.. why do you need inline
images? know about attachments? ;-))
