Writing an HTML version would normally only be done once the graphical 
design has been chosen.  It's a lot of work to get the CSS right across all
browsers, so an HTML version might only replace "this font is too small"
complaints with "this displays strangely in my browser" messages.  It's not
worth doing all that required tweaking for what's just a prototype.

Don't worry about Lynx compatibility; there are at least two people who are
primarily Lynx users (Aahz and me).  I assure you that any final design will
be Lynx-unusable over my dead body.
