     195      <para>The built-in editor in <application>Lynx</application>
     196      <xref linkend="locale-wrong-multibyte-characters"/>. This issue manifests
     197      itself in multibyte locales, e.g., as the Backspace key not erasing
     198      non-ASCII characters properly, and as incorrect data being sent to the
     199      network when one edits the contents of text areas. The only solution
     200      to this problem is to configure <application>Lynx</application> to
     201      use an external editor (bound to the <quote>Ctrl+X e</quote> key
     202      combination by default):</para>

     204
     205      <para><application>Lynx</application> handles the following values of
     206      the DEFAULT_EDITOR option specially by adding cursor-positioning
     207      arguments: <quote>emacs</quote>, <quote>jed</quote>,
     208      <quote>jmacs</quote>, <quote>joe</quote>, <quote>jove</quote>,
     209      <quote>jpico</quote>, <quote>jstar</quote>, <quote>pico</quote>,
     210      <quote>rjoe</quote>, <quote>vi</quote> (but not <quote>vim</quote>:
     211      in order to position the cursor in <xref linkend="vim"/>, set this
     212      option to <quote>vi</quote>).</para>

     214<!--  For editors:
     215      The list should be updated from src/LYEdit.c when a new version of Lynx
     216      comes out. Anyway, upstream promises (in
     217      ftp://lynx.isc.org/current/CHANGES ) to fix the multibyte issue for 2.8.7
     218-->
     219
     220      <para>By default, <application>Lynx</application> doesn't save cookies
     221      between sessions. Change this setting:</para>
     222<screen><userinput>sed -i 's/#\(PERSISTENT_COOKIES\):FALSE/\1:TRUE/' /etc/lynx/lynx.cfg</userinput></screen>
     223
    195224      <para>Many other system-wide settings such as proxies can also be set
    196225      in the <filename>/etc/lynx/lynx.cfg</filename> file.</para>
