I'm not going to say one way or the other except to express my opinion.

        1) The statement "Lynx help in your local files:" is not necessarily
        true, i.e., there is nothing to prevent the help file set from being
        on a remote server.  Theoretically, a person could point to
        or any publically accessable http server carrying them to get into the
        help file tree.

        2) I have a very strong preference for a single-page main menu
        since I can flip from top to bottom without taking my fingers off
        of the alphanumeric keys.  (I use vi keys.)  Also I can see the
        numbers of all the links at once.

        3) Although I agree with you that the search engine links shouldn't
        be on the help page (I personally put them on a page reached
        with the `i'ndex key.), there could be a lot of users out there
        who are expecting those links to be there.

I think your presentation is "clean" and sharp.  It's also great that you've
gotten rid of that silly "Choose a subject:".
