OK, taking into consideration the feedback so far, there is interest in
making the 'lynx -help' output fit within a 24x80 screen, with a less
obvious command-line option to bring up the full list.  I agree with this
idea.  Here is a draft of what I think the one-screen page should be. It
starts with the 'lynx -version' output.  Comments/suggestions welcome.

Lynx Version 2.7
(c)1997 GNU General Public License

Lynx is a fully-featured World Wide Web (WWW) client for users running
cursor-addressable, character-cell display devices (e.g., vt100 terminals
or emulators, or any other "curses-oriented" displays).

USAGE:  lynx [options] [file or URL]

  To see a full list of startup options, execute 'lynx -help2'

  From within Lynx, use the '?' key to view an extensive users guide.
  The 'o' key will bring up a set of user-definable preferences.

  Many options have been compiled into your local installation of lynx by
  your system administrator.  Some options for your local system are also
  defined in a global lynx.cfg file that is checked by lynx upon startup.

Check the online users guide ('?' key within Lynx) for answers to the most
frequently asked questions and help with all aspects of Lynx usage.
