Many people consider the javascript: URL scheme a very bad design decision.
Best current practice is to make the link a link to a fallback page and
use onxxxx event handler parameters to trigger the scripting.

contolField looks to me to be a user defined function, so supporting it 
would require Lynx to implement a complete ECMAScript interpreter and
whatever standard and de facto standard object models that the implementation
of the function depends on.  That would be a fundamental re-write, and may be
essentially impossible if the function does something that only makes sense
in a GUI environment.
