That is not a standard format for post data. Post data should be
directly in the wire format, see:
Also, it is unlikely that anyone would include spaces in the wire
format for forms, and if they did, they would need to be replaced by "+"
or "%20" The labels on the displayed form need bear no resemblance to
the wire format.
I would assume that Lynx sends application/x-www-form-urlencoded as the
content-type, so can only post in that format.
