The trick here is to use CTL-V from within the text area. This allows
you to use the usual lynx navigation commands. Make sure to set
keypad mode to "Form fields and links are numbered" rather than just
to "Links are numbered" in your option menu (save to .lynxrc). The
question of an editor for the textarea in forms has been brought up
before, but is waiting for someone to submit a solution.
