One thing I've always thought might be really helpful is when a page
defined in STARTFILE cannot be accessed, instead of terminating, to go to
an included html page in the distribution saying something to the effect

"The page defined in STARTFILE cannot be accessed.  You may wish to
check the URL in the STARTFILE definition line of lynx.cfg and change it.
You may also at this time press 'g' to enter a URL to go to."

Of course, it might be a concern if the keymap is changed, plus there
would have to be multiple language versions, but just the idea might be
implementable in a way I haven't thought of.

Just as long as almost ANYTHING but termination of the browser can be
done, that's an improvement.
