Dos Lynx is out there, but not supported in an upto-date version;
there is a good version for Windows.
i don't know myself whether the ^A problem is inherent in Dos Lynx
or arises from something set up by your ISP.
where is your  lynx.cfg  file? have a look there at the comments.

ugh! not compared with Lynx 2-7 for UNIX/VMS or Lynx for Win32!

you've come to the right place, but it's a busy day
& i'm not one of the more knowledgable people in this volunteer news list.
hopefully, someone with better knowledge of Dos Lynx will reply too.

enter  o  for the options page, which should tell you the version number.

i believe there's only one version for Dos:
goto , where you should find copious help on Lynx.
