The default background color in lynx is black but it's well known that the
background color should be about the same light intensity as the field of
view.  Thus most computers use a light background on the screen like dim
white, light green, etc with dark foreground (such as black).  The
situation with default lynx is aggravated by wide sreen PC monitors since
one normally only uses about half of the screen width with the other half
completely black.

I use 4 virtual consoles, each with a different background color so any
forground color scheme needs to be different for each background color so
that there is good contrast between the fore- and back- grounds.  While
what is needed is many more (non-lynx) color options on virtual terminals,
lynx should have at least one color scheme with a light backgound (which
should be the default).
