This (perhaps) implies that there's some trick I don't know about
that allows one to use the p(rint) command to append text to an
existing file as opposed to saving it to a new file, a process which,
if there already exists a file of that name, overwrites the old one.

_Is_ there such an ability in Lynx?  For me, the "printing options"
screen looks like this:

>                   Printing Options (Lynx Version 2.8.4rel.1)
>    Document: file://localhost/net/u/1/w/wdstarr/bookmarks.html
>    Number of lines: 46
>    Number of pages: 1 page (approximately)
> Print options:
>    Save to a local file
>    Mail the file
>    Print to the screen
>    Print out on a printer attached to your vt100 terminal
>    Specify at run-time
>    Use LESS to view

Am I looking right at the answer and not seeing it?
