In response to a question I had a bit ago about why
lynx forces a line break in really long lines, I

Has anyone experimented with moving to a dynamically
allocated buffer mechanism, at least for display
buffers, so that lines could be as long as they need
to be?

no - I've thought about it, but (since the limit is used in a variety of
ways) is not simple to change.

A second question; has anyone experimented with
using lynx form input elements to see whether it
is 8 bit, Unicode clean?  That is, if someone

Input isn't Unicode clean. It's probably 8-bit clean, but that's different.
