You lose!

Typical Microsoft arrogance:
                                                               Welcome to MSNBC

                              Welcome to MSNBC



(and the links don't work of course).

Since Lynx is the only browser blind^H^H^H^H^Hvisually challenged
people can use, failure to make a site readable with Lynx is a clear
case of discrimination.
