If you use a dialup server that doesn't allow you to call lynx from
the command line, but drops you into lynx directly, you probably
cannot switch to the other form of options menu.  But it isn't
really important for your purpose.

You should play with the 

 display (C)haracter set

option to find out which one gives the best results for you.
In particular, try

   Western (ISO-8859-1)
   7 bit approximations (US-ASCII)
   Macintosh (8 bit)
   RFC 1345 Mnemonic
