It's set from the options page (press "o").  The option is labeled
"VI keys" and is under the heading "Keyboard Input".  Or did I
misunderstand your question?

I'll definitely have a look at that.  I do want to cite any relevant

I don't know any way off-hand, but I'm not a screen expert.  A cursory
examination didn't come up with anything, but you might want to give the
lynx sessions the title lynx by adding the -t option to the screen command
in lynx.cfg.  Then, press ^A followed by ", which will bring up a list of
windows by name and number, with the current window selected.  Just cursor
to one with the name lynx.  It's not as quick or automated as ^A-n, ^A-p,
or ^A followed by ' and a digit, but it isn't too hard or lengthy, either.

Possibly.  I like to think almost anything you can dream up is possible
if you put your mind to it.

I don't have any answers for your other questions off the top of my head,
either, but like I said, almost anything's possible if you put your mind
to it.  Then again, some things need modifications to Lynx.  What is
sometimes not obvious is which need changes in Lynx and which ones are
already possible with the existing mechanisms.
