	Ugh!!!  That "little" typo is fatal for Lynx, which just hides
all SCRIPT content, 'cuz the rest of document becomes SCRIPT content.
It's like <!-------------------------> "decorations" when valid comment
parsing is turned on.

	And to think I made it.  Shame on me! :) :)
	
	But if the data: URL trick gets widely deployed for "inlining"
scripts, the next step is a set of REL "scripting" conventions for

	<LINK REL="FooScript" HREF="data:...">
	
and then Good-bye all worries!!!
