| I wonder why you discuss backup/tempfile problem here,

I dunno ... probably just because it was still on my mind, at the time.

| we need an equivalent of  print_wwwfile_to_fd() from GridText.c,
| something like  print_current_textarea_to_fd()
| and  restore_current_textarea_from_fd()

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "expanding an editor".  Do you
mean the query/function where lynx asks about including the text of the
page in the edit buffer, or what?

| Do you mean "backup" for original textarea content from HTTP server?
| When user decide s/he lost an original content too much
| we can suggest to reload the document with CTRL-R.

No ... hadn't really thought about having a "revert to original content"
capability, though that is something to consider doing, I suppose.
