I believe Tom Dickey gets the credit for that innovation.  I
haven't had a use for it yet, but I thought it was pretty cool.

I had speculated that the first part of the session could be
automated, and then control could be taken back via the keyboard,
but that seems not to be the case.  Lynx ignored keyboard input
when I tried it, and just sat there until I "killed" it.  A
program called (I think) "expect" is a more general-purpose
scripting tool that probably would overcome that limitation,
should you need it at some point.

Glad it worked for you--more evidence that lynx still has a
useful place in modern society!
