Yes, I mean inverse video.. and as I said, with previous versions of 
Lynx, they *were* printed in inverse video.

Sorry, I just realized -- they are possibly being printed in *BOLD* video,
but on the machines I'm using, that's showing up as inverse video.. Maybe
that throws a wrench into my whole argument -- but 2.8 does show up

Actually, input fields would be good..  Mostly I wanted links but *not*
popup menus, and that is where I realized there was the existing option.
