lynx-dev revised patch: default colors

From: Philip Webb
Subject: lynx-dev revised patch: default colors
Date: Tue, 3 Apr 2001 01:27:57 -0400
User-agent: Mutt/1.2.5i

[ yet again, this didn't reach lynx-dev: something is wrong somewhere.
is it possible that the list manager has misapplied his filter
& messages are being intercepted which contain some innocent word?
anyway TD, if this doesn't reach lynx-dev either,
could you please forward it there yourself, perhaps with your comments? ]

TD didn't really answer my question (smile):
 lynx.cfg  contains a default offering which has little authority,
so leaving it there is merely to retain an old arbitrary choice a/a a new one.
anyway, HN has a good point & i hope the patch below will meet his approval
and get into dev.21 , depending on other comment (incl TD's).
BTW there is a small discrepancy between "SVr4 curses" & "ncurses":
perhaps TD can sort that bit out.
