What does (in the main menu) Help -> About say about the version?

Ok so you open a .html or .txt kind of file that ELinks normally don't
ask about?

I can't recall when but once ELinks also had problems with showing files
with '#' in the name. Now all is encoded so there should be no problem.

$ elinks -source "dha?sd/.#Makefile.am.1.30"
$ elinks --version
ELinks 0.9.CVS (built on May 23 2004 03:50:58)
