and others use the keypad with numlock on.  But except in the Lynx/32 
version, which uses the Microsoft Console Agent, a screen reader can 
take control of keys before Lynx sees them, and there is no problem.  
I always run Lynx with "numbers act as arrows".  I can see that 
sometimes it would be useful to separately activate the function which 
embeds reference numbers in the text and gathers refs at the end.
