404 error, but I presume that you don't really mean something at
server.com, you're just using it in a bad example.  Server.com actually
exists.  Use example.com for examples, it's set up for that purpose.  We
can't tell what your problem is from that faked address.

Try:  lynx --head http://example.com

(substituting the real address), and tell us what you get back.  I
suspect that the script doesn't present the right MIME types, or perhaps
does so inconsistently.

(Currently running FC4, in case that's important to the thread)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
