Thanks to all the people who responded helping me the other week.

Some thoughts:

1) Never occured to me to alter HOME in the environment lynx ran
 in, but this basicly solved the main issue.

2) experimenting with using '-' to reroute where switches and such
  were read from I realized that lynx allows mixing them up
  with the URL in just about any order - Unix style (switches/parameters
  first then URL/file), Dos style (URL/file first then switches/parameters)

3) In fact, the only thing that seemed to be order dependent was
  that -get_data/-post_data needed to be last, preceeding any data,
  if you are going to include them in a here document with the other

Maybe I'm easily amazed!  :-)

Should 'HOME' be listed with the 'ENVIRONMENT' section of the
man page, or is this too mundane?

probably that section should be expanded

Would it be good to indicate some options after the URL
in the man page SYNOPSIS?

I hadn't noticed it could do that, actually (it's more likely a bug
than feature).  The main issue with options processing is that lynx
does it in three stages (simple options such as -version get done in
the first stage, things like -get_data are done last).
