On a script enabled browser, pushing the submit button of the form
would trigger it.  It's my understanding that it returns either
true or false, true means: submit to the server (as if there had
been no onSubmit), false means: don't.

Lynx's -post_data of course doesn't trigger anything.  It wouldn't,
even if lynx could understand events  and javascript, since all
that stuff is in the page with the FORM; and you are completely
circumventing that page by using -post_data, lynx never sees it.
