        An update of is available in:

* Added support for numbered form fields, and options in SELECT popups,
  based on LE's patch.  The LINKS_AND_FORM_FIELDS_ARE_NUMBERED keypad
  mode can be defined in userdefs.h and via the 'o'ptions menu.  When
  in SELECT popups, the F_LINK_NUM ('0') command can be used in any mode
  to invoke a "Select option (or page) number:" prompt, which can take
  'g' or 'p' suffixes, homologously to the "Follow link (or page) number:"
  prompt in the main document with popups retracted.  Note that when in
  the main document, the F_LINK_NUM command has an implied 'g' suffix
  for form links (i.e., will position you on the form link, not, for
  example, ACTIVATE a submit button), but *not* in popup windows (i.e.,
  without a 'g' suffix, the option corresponding to the number will be
  selected, and the popup will be retracted, as if you had pressed
  ACTIVATE when positioned on that option).  The 123p feature is quite
  useful in popups with a very large number of options, and supplements
  the HOME, END and WHEREIS functions for seeking positions in the list
  (again, regardless of keypad mode, if F_LINK_NUM is used to invoke
  the prompt).  A "page" is defined as the number of lines within the
  vertical dimension of the popup box. - FM
* Mods in LYEdit.c to seek the current page and line when the editor
  is sedt on VMS. - FM
* Updated the online 'h'elp concerning the "Follow link (or page) number:"
  and "Select option (or page) number:" features (Lynx_users_guide.html,
  follow_help.html, keystroke_help.html and other_help.html). - FM
