adherents of Lynx wb amused to hear the latest re Washington Post.
a few days ago, WP instituted a free login policy, wh relies on cookies.
i have signed up -- WP is one of the World's best news sources -- ,
but when i try to login using Konqueror (KDE 3.2 on Gentoo Linux),
WP retorts that i don't have cookies enabled (i do).
Mozilla 1.6 & Galeon 1.3.12 seem to send recognisable cookie responses,
wh allow normal access to the lists of stories.
the new Firefox 0.8 hangs itself up in the process.

Lynx 2.8.5dev16 -- sb 2.13.16 -- is admitted w/o any kind of login !

Lynx also remains by far the best way to e-mail news items to others.
