Hi Winnie,

I was realy surprised while installing Etch from scratch, to see that
"w3c" is hardcoded in the mc.ext file which was previously "lynx" and
on my systems installed since 9 years...

Please can you use sensible-browser or something like this?

Since there is a problem with the "--dump" option which differs between
"w3c" and "lynx" and maybe others, I suggest, that "mc" use its own
wraper script for this purpose.

If you need ANY help, please let me know...

I use "mc" daily very heavily and it is the most used program on my
systems (see the contributes *.syntax and currently I am working on a
new html.syntax where I had already a discusion on <mc at gnome.org> about
it since the "html.syntax" is a killer)
