"Do whatever you did before to submit something with Lynx to the same

If that doesn't apply then nevermind.

Write significant line ends as %13%10.
Replace significant spaces by + or %20.
Replace actual + characters (if any) by %2B.
Replace actual % characters (if any) by %25.

And so on, if there are more characters that need escaping: use
their ASCII hex values as above.
