I don't know what the problem was yesterday, but today every permutation
I try seems to work!

The simplest is putting the following line in "lynx.cfg" (no other change
at the Windows, DOS or Lynx level needed):

        DEFAULT_EDITOR:c:\progra~1\wzedit~1\wzeditor %1

Thanks everyone who sent in helps.  (The "pause" in a batch file trick
for trouble shooting is great to have.)
