     133      <para>
     134        <application>Mutt</application> ships with an HTML version of its
     135        manual, but the text version is no longer provided because differences
     136        in the formatting from different text browsers compared to the shipped
     137        version caused complaints. To get a text file, the following are used
     138        in order of preference: <application>lynx</application> with overstriking
     139        (backspaces) for emphasis, <application>w3m</application> or
     140        <application>elinks</application>: the latter two apparently provide
     141        plain text. Plain text is generally preferred unless reading the HTML
     142        manual, so the instructions below use <application>lynx</application>
     143        if available, or else <application>links</application> to produce plain
     144        text.

    149164    <para>
    150       <application>Mutt</application> will rebuild the html documentation
    151       if <application>libxslt</application> is present, then use that to update
    152       the text manual - even if none of the specified browsers are present. That
    153       will create an empty text file, so we will save the shipped file.

     169    <para>
     170      To ensure that a plain text manual is created when using
     171      <application>lynx</application> or to otherwise use
     172      <application>links</application> to produce it (instead of
     173      <application>elinks</application>), run the following command:

     246      <parameter>sed ... -e 's/ -with_backspaces//' ...</parameter>: This turns
     247      off the backspaces used for overstriking when <application>lynx</application>
     248      is used, resulting in readable plain text when using <command>view</command>.

     250
     251    <para>
     252      <parameter>sed ... -e 's/elinks/links/' ...</parameter>: This allows

     254      which is not in the book.
