Sounds like a good idea to me.
However, if N and n are used for repeating the last search string
it seems natural there should be a way to initiate a new
backward search.  In vi,  the ? is used for backward searching,
but this is already mapped in lynx.
Any suggestions?

Also, while we're on the topic of search strings,
I think it would also be nice to keep a buffer of previous search strings,
accessed via the arrow keys after hitting a /.
Any thoughts?
