Hope you will extend comment section on top of
I found several assumption made on lynx.cfg layout:

1) uncommented options are assumed "default"
2) commented out but flashed left options are assumed "default"
3) a single letter in parenthesis will be emphasized


give bad side effect on cattoc.html
(blank line is required after .h1 at the moment)

Many options in body.html have several "default" values
which was not intended, should be "examples" instead.
That should be proof-readed, IMO.
Few paragraphs in lynx.cfg should be rewritten for better
html output, say INCLUDE section.

Following lines are assuned in different context

STARTFILE (default)
#STRATFILE (default, or example if we have uncomented default)
# STRARTFILE (normal text)

So I propose to extent this even more: let the following lines
will be assumed verbatim (no justification):

#  some text (more than 1 space from comment symbol)
