Harvard Biolabs WWW Server -- Lynx Fix

A number of people experienced difficulty connecting to the
Harvard Biolabs WWW Home Page using Lynx.  It turns out
that Lynx is very finicky (cats always are) about servers
returning the file type -- Mosaic seems to assume stuff is
hypertext unless told otherwise whereas Lynx seems to assume
stuff is plaintext unless told otherwise.  

Anyway, I have upgraded the server and it should always be sending
out file types explicitly.  

Thanks to everyone who reported this problem promptly.
