Hi, Karen!

You can find answers to your questions by perusing your Lynx configuration
files. The location of these may vary depending on your OS and setup. Mine is
installed at ~/local/etc/, and the interesting file is lynx.cfg. Opening this
and doing a search for your points of interest ("html5", "emacs", "vi", etc.)
will reveal all!

In case you have trouble finding the configuration files, I'll repeat the 
relevant sections here:
1. HTML5:
# Those assume by default that the character set of an HTML document is (as is
# standard in HTML4) ISO-8859-1, in the absence of locale information.
# HTML5 introduces a "compatibility" (sic) feature which assumes that the
# default is Windows 1252.  In the same way, it equates ISO-8859-4 and Windows
# 1254.  Finally, it also makes recommendations which selectively reinterpret
# the locale encoding.
# This option currently implements only the equating of ISO-8859-1 and Windows
# 1252.

2. Emacs/Vi
# Vi or Emacs movement keys, i.e. familiar hjkl or ^N^P^F^B .
# These are defaults, which can be changed in the Options Menu or .lynxrc .

Vi and Emacs are text editors that employ different ways of moving/navigating
text. If you have used neither, the defaults will suit you just fine.
