        I still get left-over characters in lynx.  I discovered
control-l, which eliminates them.  How can I force this to happen
every time I change the screen?

This is likely to be because you are using the wrong terminal type in your TERMCAP setting.

If all else fails you could edit the termcap/terminfo definition to limit the terminal capabilities to effectively force a rewrite, but note that, if you succeeded, it would probably rewrite for every character entered into a form field.

It would be better simply to use a terminal description that matches your terminal emulation.

NB this is an OS issue, not a Lynx one.
