Hi!

I was just viewing my own homepages with lynx, and it seems that if a &auml; (the a 
with two dots over it) is in normal text, it is displayed coorectly. Inside the ALT 
field of an IMG, it is displayed as "&auml;".  Does this mean that ALT can't 
contain Finnish (or any other umlaut etc) characters, or is this a defect in Lynx?

If it's just a bug in Lynx, then forget about this.
