Dear Lynx Wizards,

I'm the 1st to admit that I really don't know what I'm doing WRT to lynx or 
creating webpages.
If it matters I'm running Lynx on a Solaris V2.6 system & using 
Netscape-Enterprise/3.6 SP2
for the webserver.

I've created a "dynamic" HTML page that contains the following text -
<input type=hidden name=Username  value=charliem  size=16 maxlength=16>

When viewed using the typical GUI browsers it works as desired.
The variable gets passed from one form to another & the user never sees
the variable & can NOT change it.

When this page is viewed with Lynx not only does the field get displayed,
the user can change the value of it. I need to prevent the user from 
changing the Username.

I'm surprised that Lynx does not seem to "properly" handle fields that
are tagged as "hidden". Of course it is entirely likely that this is 
just a local configuration issue. However I could not find any mention
of this in the Lynx documentation that  I have or found online.

Any feedback, suggestions or other input would be greatly welcomed.

FWIW - The complete HTML page is below.

<form action="/cgi-bin/auth_upd.cgi" method="post" >
