	It's commonly called the 'z'ap command, and normally is mapped to
lower and upper case 'z'.  Note that such client-specific matters might
be better directed to the list, rather than here.  You
need not be subscribed to post messages to that list, and can read the
replies via it's archive, accessible via the Lynx online 'h'elp.  There's
normally only a few minute lag between the majordomo's distribution of
messages to the subscribers, and their addition to the hypermail archive.

	This is in contrast to discussion about HTML such as OBJECT,
whose development appears to be dead in the water at the W3C ERB,
or perhaps continuing in "payers only" and "political" circles.  Given
the sorry state of affairs which the MIT contingent of the W3C has
inflicted on the Web and HTML development, how clients such as Lynx,
Grail, UniWWW, EmacsWWW, etc. can try to cope with that sorry state of
affairs might just as well be discussed here as anywhere.  When some
substantive discussion about HTML recently started up in the IETF
HTML-WG list, the chairman of the W3C ERB reiterated intentions to
kill the list ;( and complete the carjacking ): sigh...
