Yes, this is just the way lynx works with buttons.  My understanding is
that it makes two passes on forms.  For the first pass, it leaves ___ as a
placeholder for the VALUE attribute to be filled in on the second pass.
My understanding is that in order to get it to do it in a more sensible
manner, the form handling code would basically have to be written from the
ground up.
