  Thanks much for the info.  I tried "^Ve" but the weird thing is
that, instead of editing the input field, it attempts to edit the
entire html page.  Same even if I define the field to be a "textarea"
instead of an "input".  I wonder whether it's because of the version
of lynx I'm using (Version 2.8rel.2 (1998))?
