Python 2.0 quick reference...

Okay, my reaction to the first is:

	Darn Microsoft to heck for not having an importer for a common academic
format when they've charged me most of a $1000 for this bleeping program!
And secondarily, why can't everyone (latex included) use something standard
(SGML, XML, I don't care, I'm a content guy) so that whatever I use to read
something will at least be able to read and display it in some form.

Conclusion:

	Lynx engenders love of standards and hate of Microsoft among WebMasters.

Hey, you're right ;) .

The problem is that your rant leaves out interoperability issues.  For
example, consider how a user of MS Word feels on receiving a document in
LaTeX format.  That's the way a lot of webmasters feel about Lynx.
