Well, here I run a nice Windows-98 version from Hataguti, and I want to use
"COLOR_STYLE", but I want to know about that in the configuration, and the
environmental variable "LYNX_LSS", and I see that there is no command-line
option "lss". What is the story with these things? What is the precedence
if all are there? Is the tilde-construct supported with "COLOR_STYLE" or
the rest?

color-style is a separate compile-time configuration. If lynx has been compiled to support it, there would be a -lss option. The filename associated with that is treated like the -cfg option (allows tilde).

Normally the colors used for color-style are defined in the ".lss" file and do not correspond to those defined in lynx.cfg

Coincidentally, in work toward dev.19, I have modified the initialization
of color-style to use the lynx.cfg values if the ".lss" file is explicitly
suppressed, e.g.,

        lynx -lss=""

In many cases that produces a screen which looks like the non-color-style.
See this interim patch:

which contains that change (mostly in LYStyle.c and LYCurses.c, with some configuration support of course in other files). I'm working on bug-fixes now, and when done with bug-fixes will release dev.19.

(In neither the configuration-file nor "...alphatoc..." under COLOR is it
stated that it is overridden by the foregoing.)
