My copy of linux, compiled for linux-slang, does fall back to using mono
attributes when invoked with `lynx -term=linux-m' or `TERM=linux-m lynx'.
Maybe your terminfo or termcap entry for linux-m is wrong.  Or you have
the environment variable COLORTERM set.

Probably Lynx fails to interpret the HTML in question as the author(s)
intended, because the author(s) didn't write valid HTML.

That is probably what the author(s) of such forms use as justification for
not writing valid HTML.  Lynx just happens to disagree with them.
