A couple of other things I've noticed that the Win32 version needs are an
awareness of DOS's funky backslash separator (file:///c:\test.html will
crash lynx) as well as the ability to deal with just a filepath on the
command line to be able to cope with drag-and-drop and spawning from
editors such as Webber (i.e. lynx c:\test.html should assume you mean a
local file, and not go through the lookup process).  Also, I haven't
figured out any way to define an editor on the options screen that will
actually work (I've tried 'notepad', 'notepad.exe',
'c:/windows/notepad.exe', etc.).

Cool!  More exposure for Lynx which is part of what we wanted the Win/DOS
ports for. :)
