So how exactly does this work?

Does it start up a new Terminal window with the lynx process and the URL?

You are correct, sir; that is precisely what it does. :-)

Right now I have rows and columns as script properties; I'm thinking of maybe having a preferences file to store such settings, and trying to decide what to set for the window title (maybe "lynx" plus cols x rows?).

While I don't actually just go to URLs often from some other electronic
media (i.e. I usually copy/paste the URL manually into a new browser window),
this sounds neat.

That's what I usually do too, for non-OSX systems (cuz I'm usually wanting to visit the site in Lynx). My sister doesn't understand why it makes me happy to have Lynx as my default Mac browser, hehehehe.
