[Lynx-dev] How to format data for -post_data

I have seen quite a number of posts related to -post_data and its
uses. However, I fail to see a mention of how to submit a form having
a textarea input field.

The problem is that I want to submit a form having such a textarea
field with multiple lines of input (with some special characters like
+ and ;). However, lynx concatenates everything to a single line, and
then gets confused by the special characters.

Is there something that I can do to format the input data such that
lynx can pass it on correctly to the server? A sample form data that I
would like to submit is shown below.

$ cat file.txt
&Address=House no 000,
PO + Vill: My village;
Some country

$ lynx -post_data < file.txt
