Yes you can use it. Lynx output:

    LFS Banner 
   search search [All of LFS______]
   searching for glibc______

To the left of "All of LFS" you see two search words. The first one is a
JavaScript link that doens't work in Lynx and I don't even know why Lynx
even displays it. The second 'search' is inside <noscript> tags which
should be displayed by browsers not supporting JavaScript (like lynx). Lynx
should not dislay the javascript code, a bug perhaps?

No, it's done on purpose to get people to pick a mirror site right away
before even reading anything. If not, I doubt many people will even
consider using a mirror site.

About the overall redesign: i'm not a graphics artist, I could use some
help. If anybody has ideas go at it and show me something.
