I seemed I didn't explain it good enough (bad english or knowledge of terms
or I don't know what else, so add it here).

The term DOCUMENT should be read a it is a resource, containing Lynx
readable (and displayable) information. Just like a HTML document is or a
text-file on your disk, lynx can read (and understand) them.
At least, that is what I mean with the term document in this mail.

Just compare it to the Options screen. It's a what I whould call 'special'
document. You can navigate through it and modify options, like you whould do
in a normal HTML document with forms and controls.
ONLY the client doesn't send it to a web server or mail, but uses it to
modify its own settings (got the difference?).
Can't we do a similar thing for a document that is used to generate/send
e-mails, this would allow the user to easily move through To, CC, (BCC,)
Subject and body fields, just like he/she is used to when browsing (in
Also I suppose it would require less programming then (or than???) rewriting
the code used for sending e-mails.

Hope I explained it a bit better.
