was that it was an improvement.  Occasionally (this past month is odd with
_two_ comments about it) someone asks about it.

The oldlynx script in lynx's samples directory makes it look almost the
same as the non-color-style.  (The "almost" is because links don't
paint just the same way...).  According to the changelog, I added the
DEFAULT_COLORS setting to help with the oldlynx script, which looks like

Ok. As I said, I don't think the packagers of my rpm really intended yellow text on a white background, so I'll just say it is happening in the default configuration and that setting DEFAULT_COLORS to false gives the black background that their lynx.lss specifies. I'm not really fussy about the colors as long as I can make out the text. The oldlynx settings would be ok, as would the colors that I think they were trying for. I just don't think lynx should come up unreadable by default.
