MIME types. They are broken in all GNU/Linux distributions I
encountered to date – in MirBSD, lynx behaves the way you want.

What you can try to do is:

  Preferred media type             : [33][(1)__Accept lynx' internal types_]

in (O)ptions. Maybe that helps, or I’m misreading what this
option should do.

At work, I couldn’t manage to get lynx to use xloadimage
(which I’ve specified as XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND) for images,
it always uses the system’s apparently-default imagemagick
which is a PITA. So, ideas welcome too ;)
