As others have said, Lynx can open this page fine. However, I think the problem is the following: If you browse https://m.medicalxpress.com/ in Lynx and find the "load more" link, when you select this, Lynx tries to load the URL https://m.medicalxpress.com/./page2.html and the server says that this is not found. The server does not expect the dot to be present in the URL. The link is written (some syntax elided): <a href="./page2.html">load more</a> Most other browsers, including links, don't copy this dot into the URL when following the link, so they don't experience a problem. Is Lynx correct to copy the dot? I think not. According to RFC 1808 in Section 4 where it describes an algorithm for resolving relative URLs, in Step 6: a) All occurrences of "./", where "." is a complete path segment, are removed. This carries through into RFC 3986 where section 5.2.4 describes a "Remove Dot Segments" algorithm. imc _______________________________________________ Lynx-dev mailing list Lynxemail@example.com https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/lynx-dev
