AND with a pointing device.  Although you may be able to see the body text,
without one, you may have to tab a long way to get to any real hypertext
links.  (Note that is more severe when using a visual browser, Lynx, a text
only browser, makes it very easy to search for a link and also allows
one to display a number against each link and just type the number.  By
easy to search, I mean that one needs to press one, unshifted, main keyboard
key, type a search string and press return.  The key is standard for many
programs and there is no delay for a dialogue box to render.)
