with the English word I entered and the French translation.
Good; it's a keeper; print it!  Alas, the printed page shows
the essential information (the English word and the French
translation) as blanks.  Is this WAD; perhaps a security
feature not to print text entry fields on forms?

offhand this looks like a known problem with the -dump option (though I hadn't noticed it in the print-screen). The problem is that lynx's dump isn't substituting the text fields into the formatted output - their content isn't stored in quite the same way.

It's fixable (but I've not gone in that area).
