This is probably a problem with the terminfo file that you are using
not properly representing your terminal. Does it indicate that you
have color capability? See your environment TERM setting, then look
at the corresponding terminfo file with the infocmp program (which I
believe comes with ncurses). You may also be able to affect this by
changing the color setting on the lynx option page (stored in .lynxrc)
to ON or OFF. You may also try changing the colors specified for the
links. The values are noted in lynx.cfg:

# COLOR:Integer:Foreground:Background
# The Integer value is interpreted as follows:
#   0 - normal                      - normal text
#   1 - bold                        - hyperlinks, see also BOLD_* options above
#   2 - reverse                     - statusline
#   3 - bold + reverse              (not used)
#   4 - underline                   - text emphasis (EM, I, B tags etc.)
#   5 - bold + underline            - hyperlinks within text emphasis
#   6 - reverse + underline         - currently selected hyperlink
#   7 - reverse + underline + bold  - WHEREIS search hits
# Each Foreground and Background value must be one of:
#   black         red            green         brown
#   blue          magenta        cyan          lightgray
#   gray          brightred      brightgreen   yellow
#   brightblue    brightmagenta  brightcyan    white

If I understand you correctly, color 1 and color 6 appear the same to
you. One should be bold and the other reverse + underline when color
is OFF. With color ON, color 1 defaults to blue on white, while color
6 defaults to red on white. I have changed my personal preference
for color 6 to white on black. These look fine for me, but I don't
know how they work with a screen reader. Probably the best fix is to
make sure that your terminfo file is correct for your terminal. Other
changes may work around the problem. If you still have problems, I
suspect that Tom could help if you were to give details about your
terminal, TERM value, and terminfo capabilities.
