Hmm. Good point for certain users. But in my case I use lynx based on my
computer (where I installed an ssl-compatible version using

  fink install lynx-ssl

after installing the fink packaging system available at
http://fink.sourgeforge.net - this is like RPMfind or debian's apt-get
feature, and is in fact now based on apt-get code).

I also use it located on a server, where they haven't, as far as I know,
installed an SSL-compatible version. But as Bob says, there is nothing to
stop them. And Mac OS 9 is one of the less likely choices of operating system
for a service provider (I imagine that VAX is as popular...)
