When Keypad_mode is set to "Numbers As Arrows" the number
keys act like arrow keys -- 4==left, 6==right, etc.
The number 0 isn't bound to any cursor movement, so it
can be used to initiate a user-entered number
so as to be able to jump to links or pages directly.
Example, 045p.
When keypad_mode is numbered links or numbered form fields and links,
then lynx recognizes all numbers as the start of a user-specified
link/page number.  It also mangles the layout of the page by inserting
[xxx] numbers immediately before links and form fields.
