I thought that I had made what I was getting clear but, if it was not, I apologise. (My original post actually states " actually get taken to the Monastery Gates".)

The test I made was:

  • In Firefox, go to one of the 'Download' links in a node.
  • Right click the link.
  • From the context menu, select 'Copy link location'. (I have verified that what is copied is what shows at the bottom of Firefox when hovering over the link.)
  • Paste the link as an argument for 'lynx'.
  • Lynx loads the 'Monastery Gates' page, NOT the content of the <code></code> block to which the 'Download' link relates.

The above behaviour is the same if the link is retrieved using wget.

The main reason that I consider this behaviour bad is that the link target is other than expected (Monastery Gates, not content of <code></code> block.)
