Need a hint for elinks

Elinks has an option menu which provides a fairly indepth
configuration system.  It can be confusing because it overlays
whatever page you have displayed when you hit 'o.'  Typically I keep a
blank or nobody tab to use just for pulling up the options menu or the
bookmarks page.  Under the options menu there is a choice called html
rendering.  You open these menu choices by hitting a space to expand
and then collapse the options.  There are choices for rendering frames
and tables as frames or as separate links.  You can set frames to
links or whatever the exact menu title is and you won't have the
problem you are discussing.  BTW, the tab key is used to move through
the choices you have on each menu item from info to edit to move etc.
It is really not a bad system once you get used to it.  I just wish
the damn shift-tab worked as advertised.
