IMO, O)ptions Menu.

Ageed, but I'd like the =)information page "clean", i.e., only the function
it was designed for.  Fewer lines of irrelevant information on the page
means extra lines available for other information about the currently viewed
page, if in the future such information were to become available.

Not a navigational "problem."

Yes.  Discourages use of the old, static options menu.

It's already on the forms-based O)ptions menu; which is in itself, i.e.,
the _duplication_, my major complaint.

Anyway, it's up to you.


PS  You'll all be happy to know that I've been pretty much cut off from
    lynx-dev.  No knowing when things will normalize.
