Oo, how do you do that?
I've been trying to set up "vi-keys with lynx" style navigation any

If you do this you could try citing relevant legislation eg for the uk:
Although most UK goverment sites only accept feedback via forms that
don't work without Javascript!

I do something similar.
Is it possible to to bind a key in screen to cycle through just the lynx
binding a key to exec a script that calls
"screen -X select $NEXT_LYNX_INSTANCE" ?
It's passing around and updating the list of windows with Lynx I'm stuck
I've considered screen escape sequences or environment variables,
or parsing a tempfile.

And more ambitiously would it be possible to have a script update a
jumps file of lynxexec links to "screen -X " commands emulating a
"goto tab" page?

Also while I'm here - some wishlist items :) -

- Can you get a persisent history some how?
I've tried using the syslog feature, and specifying a place to save
lynx's tempfiles and getting a script to process that.
Neither were satisfactory.

- the ability to pipe a page through a filter and have the result
  returned to the same lynx instance.
Not only would this allow for some interesting tweeks/mungings
(eg removing unwanted content in know format pages, table layout etc) 
but it could also provide for a more general script hook.

I've tried workarounds using EXTERN to invoke wgetting scripts etc
but this would be more elegant.
