Hm. That's pleasant.

I wish there were other browsers out there. I suppose I should look around
a bit. I'm sure there's something out there that does standards-compliant
HTML. (Opera, I guess, but that's neither free (speech) nor ported to any
sort of Unix yet, from what I've read...)

The unfortunate things about this sort of locking up is that it prevents me
from getting to another wsconsole where I could kill the offensive process
and get on with life. :) Oh well.

Okay. There looks to be two promising bits: Amaya and Chimera. Maybe if I
get one of them to build and it looks interesting I'll cut my teeth on it
and make (and submit!) a package.
