I've found that of www, lynx, and Mosaic, only lynx works for
me in retrieving files from the comp.text.sgml archive at Oslo.
gives a directory of subdirectories, one per day, under which
are the actual archived messages.  Both www and Mosaic refuse
to retrieve (or are refused) the message files; lynx does fine,
as does plain old ftp.

Can anyone say why?  does it matter that the message filenames
include colons?
