or you could get the direct url to the file and put the name in  
quotes? and download it directly?

with Lynx the cat.  Also, you'll have to be careful when saving.  Lynx  
doesn't preserve the full names of the files because NLS uses spaces.   
If possible, you should use Firefox for a better experience, but it  
can be done with Lynx.  What I did was send a head request for the  
book I wanted and print the output to a file.  Among the headers is  
the full name of the file.  If using Speakup, you can copy and paste  
the file name, including quotes and rename the incomplete file names.
