+++ Options Screen Help +++

        The Options Screen allows you to set and
        modify many of Lynx's features. The following
        options may be set.

     Editor             -  If non-empty it defines the editor to spawn
                           when editing a local file or sending mail.
			   Any valid text editor may be entered here.

     DISPLAY variable   -  If non-empty it specifies your X terminal
                           display address.

     Multi-bookmarks    -  When OFF, the default bookmark file is used
                           for the 'v'iew bookmarks and 'a'dd bookmark
                           link commands.  If set to STANDARD, a menu
                           of available bookmarks always is invoked
                           when you seek to view a bookmark file or add
                           a link, and you select the bookmark file by
                           its letter token in that menu.  If set to
                           ADVANCED, you instead are prompted for the
                           letter of the desired bookmark file, but can
                           enter '=' to invoke the STANDARD selection
                           menu, or RETURN for the default bookmark file.

     Bookmark file      -  If non-empty and multi-bookmarks is OFF, it
                           specifies your default 'Bookmark file'.
                           If multi-bookmarks is STANDARD or ADVANCED,
                           entering 'B' will invoke a menu in which you
                           can specify the filepaths and descriptions
                           of up to 26 bookmark files.  The filepaths
                           must be from your home directory, and begin
                           with dot-slash (./) if subdirectories are
                           included (e.g, ./BM/lynx_bookmarks.html).
                           Lynx will create bookmark files when you
                           first 'a'dd a link, but any subdirectories
                           in the filepath must already exist.

     FTP sort criteria  -  This option allows you to specify how files
                           will be sorted within FTP listings.  The
                           current options include "By Filename",
                           "By Size", "By Type", and "By Date".

     Personal Mail      -  You may set your mail address here so that
     Address               when mailing messages to other people or
                           mailing files to yourself, your email address
                           can be automatically filled in.  Your email
                           address will also be sent to HTTP servers in
                           a from: field.

     Searching type     -  If set to 'case sensitive', user searches
                           invoked by the '/' command will be case 
                           sensitive substring searches.  The
                           default is 'Case Insensitive' substring

     Display Character  -  This option allows you to set up the default
     set                   character set for your specific terminal.
                           The character set provides a mapping of 8-bit
                           ISO Latin character entities and/or Asian (CJK)
                           characters into viewable characters and should
                           be set in relation to your terminal's character
                           set if you will be viewing such characters with
                           Lynx.  You must have the selected character set
                           installed on your terminal.

     Raw 8-bit or CJK   -  Toggles whether 8-bit characters are assumed to
     mode                  correspond with the selected character set and
                           therefore are processed without translation via
                           the ISO Latin 1 conversion tables.  Should be
	                   ON by default when the selected character set is
                           ISO Latin 1, or is one of the Asian (CJK) sets
                           and the 8-bit characters are Kanji multibytes.
                           Should be OFF for the other character sets, but
                           can be turned ON when there's a match, e.g., the
                           document's charset is ISO-8859-2 and ISO Latin 2
                           has been selected.  Should be OFF when an Asian
                           (CJK) set is selected but the document is
                           ISO-8850-1.  The setting also can be toggled via
                           the RAW_TOGGLE command, normally mapped to '@',
                           and at startup via the -raw switch.

     Preferred Document -  The language you prefer if multi-language files are
     Language              available from servers.  Use MIME abbreviations,
                           e.g., en for English, fr for French, etc.  Can be
                           a comma-separated list in descending order of

     Preferred Document -  The character set you prefer if sets in addition
     Charset               to ISO-8859-1 and US-ASCII are available from
                           servers.  Use MIME notation (e.g., ISO-8859-2)
                           and do not include ISO-8859-1 or US-ASCII, since
                           those values are always assumed by default.  Can
                           be a comma-separated list in descending order of

     VI keys           -   If set to 'ON' then the lowercase h, j, k, and l,
                           keys will be mapped to left-arrow, down-arrow,
			   up-arrow, and right-arrow, respectively.  The
                           uppercase H, J, K, and L keys remain mapped to
                           their configured bindings (normally HELP, JUMP,
                           KEYMAP, and LIST, respectively).

     Emacs keys        -   If set to 'ON' then the CTRL-P, CTRL-N, CTRL-F, 
                           and CTRL-B keys will be mapped to up-arrow,
                           down-arrow, right-arrow,  and left-arrow,
                           respectively.  Otherwise, they remain mapped
                           to their configured bindings (normally UP_TWO
                           lines, DOWN_TWO lines, NEXT_PAGE, and PREV_PAGE,

     Show dot files    -   If display/creation of hidden (dot)
                           files/directories is enabled, you can turn
                           the feature on or off via this setting.

     Popups for select -   Lynx normally uses a popup window for the
     fields                OPTIONs in form SELECT fields when the field
                           does not have the MULTIPLE attribute specified,
                           and thus only one OPTION can be selected.  The
                           use of popup windows can be disabled by changing
                           this setting to OFF, in which case the OPTIONs
                           will be rendered as a list of radio buttons.
                           Note that if the SELECT field does have the
                           MULTIPLE attribute specified, the OPTIONs always
                           are rendered as a list of checkboxes.

     Keypad mode  -        This option gives the choice between navigating 
                           with the keypad (as arrows; see Lynx Navigation)
                           and having every link numbered (numbered links)
			   so that the links may be selected by numbers
			   instead of moving to them with the arrow keys.

     Line edit style   -   This option allows you to set alternate key
                           bindings for the built-in line editor, if your
                           system administrator has installed alternates.
                           Otherwise, Lynx uses the Default Binding.

     List directory    -   Applies to Directory Editing.  Files and
     style                 directories can be presented in the following
                            Mixed style
                              Files and directories are listed together in
                              alphabetical order.
                            Directories first
                              Files and directories are separated into two
                              alphabetical lists.  Directories are listed
                            Files first
                              Files and directories are separated into two
                              alphabetical lists.  Files are listed first.

     User Mode         -   Beginner 
                              Shows two extra lines of help at the bottom 
                              of the screen
                           Intermediate (normal mode) 
                              The "normal" statusline messages appear. 
                              The URL is shown on the statusline. 

      User Agent        -  The header string which Lynx sends to servers
                           to indicate the User-Agent is displayed here.
                           Changes may be disallowed via the -restrictions
                           switch.  Otherwise, the header can be changed
                           temporarily to a string such as L_y_n_x/2.7 for
                           access to sites which discriminate against Lynx
                           based on checks for the presence of "Lynx" in the
                           header. If changed during a Lynx session, the
                           default User-Agent header can be restored by
                           deleting the modified string in the Options Menu.
                           Whenever the User-Agent header is changed, the
                           current document is reloaded, with the no-cache
                           flags set, on exit from the Options Menu.  Changes
                           of the header are not saved in the RC file.
                           NOTE that Netscape Communications Corp. has
                           claimed that false transmissions of "Mozilla" as
                           the User-Agent are a copyright infringement, which
                           will be prosecuted.  DO NOT misrepresent Lynx as
                           Mozilla.  The Options Menu issues a warning about
                           possible copyright infringement whenever the header
                           is changed to one which does not include "Lynx" or

     Local execution   -   If set to 'ALWAYS ON', Lynx will locally execute
     links                 commands contained inside of any links.  This
                           can be HIGHLY DANGEROUS so it is recommended
                           that they remain 'ALWAYS OFF' or 'FOR LOCAL
                           FILES ONLY' unless otherwise set by your system
                           administrator.  This option may not be available
                           on most versions of Lynx.
