I actually am looking for the page that lynx constructs (minus
images/colors/formatting) and just want a page with the content and

Right now when i -dump all my links are prepended with [#] and then
there is a reference section at the end with all the links [#]
http://....  I want those links to stay apart of the text they are on.

There are a few options to add to "-dump" to get different appearance -

That's done with the "-nolist" option, which currently suppresses all of the links. You can get just the list of links (the reference section)
using "-listonly".

For getting the links by themselves, I've a development patch against 2.8.7dev.8 which is in that area:

* modify behavior of "-nonumbers" option for -dump so it can be combined with
  -listonly to obtain a list of the URLs without reference numbers (Debian
  #398283) -TD

(I'll put out dev.9 once I'm done with some ongoing changes for the SSL

I've been experimenting with Lynx for the first time today and think
it's great.  What i want to do is dump a page to html (basically i
want the links to stay in the dump) but am unable to find
documentation on how to do this.  I don't want to dump the source, i
want to dump the page lynx creates with it's stripped down style
including links.

 it sounds as if you want the original html page (that's using the "-source"
