It isn't from a form or anything fancy, just a simple link that could look like:

<A HREF="list_one_subject.cgi?397795902 000 DVD_1043951012 00000 
list_subjects.cgi">DVD All Zones</A>

And apparently, it looks like the Apache httpd server expects a %20 instead of
the actual ' ', and the other browsers provide it, but Lynx provides the actual
[special] character.

I will see if I can figure something out from the -trace flag log.
